Rob Cortes – Graduate Student

Rob was a National Science Foundation and Patrick Healy fellow who joined the Graduate Program in 2018 to work under the mentorship of Adam Green in the Laboratory for Relational Cognition. He earned his B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy at Georgetown University, where he worked as a research coordinator and studied the cognitive mechanisms that support creative thinking. He is broadly interested in understanding and enhancing human cognition. His current research project focuses on utilizing brain stimulation to enhance various cognitive abilities and reveal the core functional brain networks that support them. Outside of the lab, Rob's favorite activities include running, meditating, and walking his two miniature dachshunds (Garth and Wayne).
