"Clifford Ian Workman"

I grew up in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., before moving to Baltimore in 2003 to pursue my undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Although I originally aspired to a career in clinical psychology, my interests shifted to social neuroscience after volunteering in several psychology research labs and taking courses in neuroscience, moral philosophy, and cultural anthropology. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I looked for opportunities to develop skills that would aid me in pursuing a career in social neuroscience, particularly experience acquiring and analyzing neuroimaging data. I was fortunate to join Professor Gwenn Smith’s laboratory studying major depressive disorder with PET and MRI and considered how I might translate my interests into clinically relevant questions about the neurobiological bases of social behaviour. I found inspiration in research being conducted by Dr. Roland Zahn and Professor Rebecca Elliott on moral and social behavior and its disruption in mood disorders and completed my Ph.D. in Medicine in December 2015 at the University of Manchester under their supervision. In 2016, I began as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago in the Social Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory headed by Professor Jean Decety. We are now collaborating on projects to investigate the neurobiological basis of support for political violence. Since July 2018, I have been a postdoctoral scholar in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania. Under the supervision of Professor Anjan Chatterjee, I am examining the neural basis of interactions between aesthetic evaluation and moral psychology.
