Sarah Maylott

New to the SNRF family, Sarah Maylott is entering her fourth year of the Ph.D. program in Developmental Psychology, at the University of Miami. Sarah’s research focuses on  infants’ social cognitive development, using eye tracking technology. She hopes to create a baseline of healthy social cognitive development that will bring about earlier detection of developmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder. Sarah also studies cognitive changes in women during pregnancy, as well as the implications for subsequent behavioral changes occurring in mothers. She seeks to provide new insight for women who are experiencing this unique period of development. In her free time, Sarah enjoys being outdoors with her two dogs, Dooley and Dakota.

Elle Wiggins

Elle Wiggins, a 2018 SNRF scholarship recipient, is entering her fourth year of the Ph.D. program in Clinical Psychology, with a specialization in Neuropsychology, at the University of Florida. Elle’s research focuses on the older adult brain in the context of surgery. She recently proposed her dissertation which aims to help evaluate the efficacy of digital cognitive screening tools that can be implemented in hospital settings to identify older adults most at risk for negative post-operative outcomes. She hopes that her research will one day help identify older adults at risk for cognitive decline, resulting in earlier intervention and a more comfortable life. When not in the laboratory, Elle enjoys exploring Florida and spending time with her pup, Waffle!

After serving a tour in Afghanistan as a US Marine, he was motivated to research concussions. He worked in a dementia research laboratory for three years that led to further interest in memory disorders. Charles’ clinical and research interests include memory and perception changes following mild traumatic brain injury and repetitive brain injuries in collision sport athletes. He is also interested in identifying the overlapping neuropathological features and clinical symptoms between individuals with repetitive head injuries and Alzheimer's disease.
