Ciera graduated from Barrett, The Honors College at ASU with her B.S. in Psychology in 2017. From 2016-2019, Ciera worked in the EEG Lab with Drs. Gene Brewer and Chris Blais investigating dynamics of low-level cognitive processes using a variety of biofeedback tools, including EEG, neurostimulation, and eye-tracking/pupillometry. Ciera then transitioned into the role of EEG Lab Specialist in the Healthy Experiences Across Relationships and Transitions Lab (@HEART Lab), where she investigated the neurophysiological correlates of acceptance and rejection in romantic couples. During this time, Ciera also worked in the Couples Coping with Stress Lab, where she helped develop and disseminate stress measurements that better captured temporally accurate interpersonal emotion dynamics in couples.

In 2019, Ciera joined the Substance Use, Health, and Behavior Lab at ASU as a Clinical Psychology graduate student under the mentorship of Dr. Madeline Meier. During her time as a graduate student, Ciera will be investigating the intersection of psychosis and substance use, and hopes to use her findings to better understand the underlying mechanisms of severe psychopathology.
