My goal is to help students learn about psychology and the scientific research process. As a mentor, I take a hands-on approach and actively build a collaborative team atmosphere with my students. I work closely with my students to reach their own personal and career goals.
If you are a graduate or undergraduate student and interested in joining my lab, please feel free to reach out to me.
Here are some things you will gain from joining my lab:
- experience working in a research laboratory including designing research studies, collecting and analyzing data, and presenting your work at academic conferences and in peer reviewed journal publications
- experience working with children and families in a professional setting
- experience learning computer and programming skills
- knowledge about developmental and cognitive psychology
- a professional reference and letter of recommendation
