Developmental Psychology. Minor in Neuroscience.
After graduation, I’ll likely take a gap year and then apply to clinical developmental psychology graduate programs.
I’m interested in the unique ways in which identities are formed during childhood and the mechanisms through which culture, resilience, and trauma play a role in development. I’m also looking to develop my knowledge of developmental disorders and am currently seeking research opportunities to progress my curiosity! I’m a past MSROP scholar and I’ve been doing directed research for over a year.
My Advice for How to Get Involved in Research:
Take advantage of the resources available to you. The University of Minnesota is a research-oriented institution and there are a plethora of opportunities waiting to be explored. Check out the Office of Undergraduate Research website, set up a meeting with the staff, attend a symposium, and/or research faculty you’re interested in working with. Once you take that first step it’ll open up a lot of opportunities for you!
