Travis Evans is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the VA Boston Healthcare System and Massachusetts General Hospital within the Neuropsychiatry Translational Research Fellowship (NeTReF) program. He earned his Ph.D in clinical psychology at the University of Miami prior to completing his clinical internship at VA Boston. His research broadly focuses on characterizing dysregulation within neural circuits that support approach and avoidance motivational systems across internalizing and trauma-related disorders. In the BALLAB, he is currently focusing on characterizing how reward modulates neural mechanisms underlying PTSD-related deficits in sustained attention.
