Farewell to Crystal Reeck

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to Crystal Reeck, who has recently left Duke after completing her graduate work. Crystal is now a Postdoctoral Research Scholar and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Decision Making and Negotiations area at Columbia Business School. Her research examines emotion-cognition interactions in decision making and characterizes the neural mechanisms that support those interactions. We wish Crystal the best of luck even though we know she really doesn’t need it. Cheers Crystal! [07/17/2013]
