Prior to working at USF, Abbie Popa conducted research examining electrical brain signals from adolescents with and without anxiety. Abbie showed differences in signals associated with attention and behavioral inhibition in adolescents. Abbie came to USF to continue expanding her research to look at more complex networks and markers. She developed data-driven techniques that can be applied to neuroscience and other diverse data sets. Abbie concluded her fellowship and is now a senior data scientist at App Annie.
