Briana Brownlow, B.A.
Briana is a first year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program, co-advised by Dr. Julian Thayer and Dr. Michael Vasey. Upon her arrival to Ohio State University, she completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Philosophy at Spelman College in 2016. Her current research centers around the psychophysiological underpinnings that can serve as mediators for the development of depressive symptoms (impulse control, emotion regulation, and anxiety). She is also interested in exploring the role of individual differences in heart rate variability and its interaction with music, as a possible method of influencing physiological experiences that translate to psychopathology treatment.
