Briana Hernandez

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Years in Lab: 2019 - present

I graduated with honors from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2018 and received a bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Science. As an undergraduate, I worked as a research assistant in Dr. Benjamin Storm’s Memory Lab examining the consequences of the pretesting effect on memory for pretested and non-pretested information. After graduating, I began to work with school-aged children with special needs, monitoring students’ demeanor, attitude, and interactions with others. I am excited about the opportunity to work on the Vasopressin Treatment Trial for children with autism and combine my passion for working with children with special needs and my research experience. I look forward to contributing to the important autism research being done in the Parker Lab!
