Emily Finn, PhD

Assistant Professor
Darthmouth College

Emily Finn is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, where she directs the Functional Imaging and Naturalistic Neuroscience (FINN) Lab. She completed her PhD in neuroscience at Yale University, and her postdoctoral training at the National Institute of Mental Health. Before that, she received a B.A. in linguistics, also from Yale. Emily has pioneered techniques such as functional connectome fingerprinting and connectome-based predictive modeling for predicting individual behaviors from functional brain connectivity. Her current work is focused on how within- and between-individual variability in brain activity relates to appraisal of ambiguous information under naturalistic conditions such as watching movies or listening to stories. She was named a Rising Star by the Association for Psychological Science and has also received the NIMH Director’s Award for Scientific Contributions.
