Dr. Amy Winecoff, part of the Psychology and Neuroscience department, successfully defended her dissertation “Domain-General Affect: Mechanisms and Clinical Implications” this morning. Her talk, delivered in front of a packed house, was a riveting display of her work and what so many years at Duke will get you. More importantly, successfully defending her dissertation and earning her doctorate entitled her to wear the crown for the day. All joking aside, Amy did a great job (as everyone knew she would) both with her talk and her defense. We wish nothing but the best for Amy. Congratulations Dr. Winecoff!
