Biography

Maggie Talbot, BA is a 2017 graduate and Enosinian Scholar of The George Washington University, where she earned a B.A. in Psychology and minored in history. During her time there, she had the opportunity to conduct TBI and secondary traumatic stress research on military populations through the Brain Fitness Center at Walter Reed and National Defense University at Fort McNair. She also explored mechanisms for coping with medical stressors while serving as an instructor with Project Knitwell in the pediatric unit of MedStar Georgetown Hospital. Maggie joined Dr. Samuelson’s team in 2017. Her research focuses on gender and PTSD. She is currently exploring the biopsychosocial mechanisms through which women experience a greater PTSD symptom severity than men. She is also exploring gendered experiences of risk-taking and impulsivity among individuals who have experienced a traumatic event. When Maggie isn’t conducting research or completing her school work, she is typically knitting, baking, practicing yoga, or hiking with her dog Gustov.
