Audrey Hood

I am in the final year of completing my Ph.D. in Psychological Science at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. My research focuses on individual differences in attention control and ways to stay on task and improve performance, which I examine both behaviourally and physiologically. I also hold my master’s degree in Experimental Psychology and my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Behavioural Neuroscience.

I have experience with publishing manuscripts, departmental talks, and have presented at numerous national and international conferences. I also thoroughly enjoy helping students increase their professional development skills with the goal of preparing them for graduate school.


Career highlights

  • Passing my comprehensive exam in 2019, advancing me to candidacy status in my PhD program.

  • Receiving the PhD Enhancement Award (2019), allowing me to teach my own class at Montana State University (which I have now taught three more times)

  • Receiving a $40,000 grant in 2021 from Montana State University to fund the second study of my dissertation.

  • Submitting a grant to the National Science Foundation in collaboration with expert researchers in my field.
