Nicole Andersen

Research Technician III

Nicole Andersen is a Research Technician III within the Developing Brain Institute and focuses on the acquisition and analyses of MRI data. She attends fetal, neonatal and preterm MRIs and works closely with MRI staff to ensure high-quality data acquisition for all of our studies. She also organizes and processes the images acquired after acquisition to be used for further analyses. Before joining the Institute, she was studying Cognitive Science with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Virginia.
