About Me


I am Debbie Yee, a postdoc in the Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences department at Brown University. I am currently working on investigating the neural and computational mechanisms of how motivation/affective processes interact with cognitive control and decision-making.

As a scientist, I aim to increase awareness of and contribute to systemic changes that will increase the diversity within academic departments and STEM. I am especially passionate about breaking the glass ceiling in leadership positions for women and minorities, and I advocate for reaching out to young students to engender a diverse generation of future scientists.
