Samantha Fede, Ph.D.

Biographical Summary

Samantha Fede joined NIAAA in 2017. She received her PhD from the University of New Mexico in 2017 where her dissertation work focused on neural dynamics associated with moral cognition, particularly how substance use and psychopathy moderate those dynamics in forensic samples. Her previous research included work on using neural signal to predict treatment outcomes, and the neural correlates of delay discounting. Dr. Fede is interested in identifying novel translational applications of neuroimaging that can be used in populations with addiction to individualize treatment and intervention.
