I am a junior studying Psychology and Human Development & Family Studies. I have always been passionate about working with children and am very interested in understanding how genes and the environment play a role in the development of children. In the future, I would like to continue my studies in either developmental or school psychology. My goal is to conduct research regarding the disparity in academic performance between groups of students with different socioeconomic backgrounds. I am very excited to gain hands-on experience in this research lab and see where it will guide me.
