COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Across UPMC, our guiding principle is to always prioritize the safety of our employees, patients, and members. UPMC believes that vaccination is important, helps protect all, and advocates that everyone who can be vaccinated should be vaccinated.

UPMC complies with all governmental requirements related to local, state, and federal COVID-19 vaccination for employment. The Jan. 13 Supreme Court of the United States decision that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate will move forward requires UPMC to ensure employees either get vaccinated or receive a requested medical or religious exemption.

If you are not yet vaccinated, we urge you to get a vaccine now. You can schedule your COVID-19 vaccination through UPMC or visit a non-UPMC provider or UPMC Urgent Care location.

Proof of vaccination is not required upon hire; however, employees will be responsible for ensuring post-hire compliance by getting vaccinated or requesting a medical or religious exemption.

Statistician | Anticipation, Cognition, and Emotion (ACE) Lab


In the Anticipation, Cognition and Emotion (ACE) lab, we use behavioral and multi-modal neuroimaging methods (MRI, fMRI, DTI, NIRS) to understand why even sub-threshold symptoms of depression, mania and anxiety often impair cognitive and overall psychosocial functioning in affected individuals.

We believe that people activate important motivational, cognitive and emotional states during preparation for or anticipation of task performance. Individuals with mood disorders are biased in their anticipation of future positive and negative events. Our research examines the contribution of anticipation-related processes to the mood symptoms – behavior – brain relationships.
