Anne Laurita received her B.S. (’13) in Human Development from the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University. Her major concentration was Social and Personality Development, and she completed a minor History of Art in the College of Arts and Sciences. Anne then received her M.A. (’15) and Ph.D. (’17) in Developmental Psychology, both at Cornell University. Her program of research addressed the neural, cognitive, and behavioral markers of close social relationships. Her dissertation project utilized functional magnetic neuroimaging to investigate how mental representations of adult attachment figures reflect the structure and function of underlying neural networks. Anne currently serves as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Skorton Center for Health Initiatives at Cornell Health, assisting with the development, implementation, and evaluation of programming for students. Skorton Center initiatives address a variety of topics central to health and well-being to promote positive culture change on campus. She hopes to pursue a career integrating college health initiatives with current methods in public health and psychology research. Anne was an Alice Cook House resident and Student Assistant during her time as an undergraduate and a Graduate Resident Fellow for all four years of her graduate program. She looks forward to fostering a vibrant living-learning community again with this year’s Cook House residents!
