College of Social & Behavioral Science
Graduate Student Mentor: Amy McDonnell (Psychology, University of Utah)
Through this opportunity, I have gained a deeper appreciation of research and its ability to expand our knowledge and induce change in the world. As a future psychologist, I hope to study various aspects of neurophysiology, so I have been extremely fortunate to use brain-imaging technology, such as electoencepholography (EEG), as an undergrad. I believe this will only make me a stronger candidate for graduate school. I feel that this experience has given me the confidence I need to pursue my goal of becoming a clinical psychologist. Working alongside a mentor has also been extremely beneficial, as Amy has motivated and inspired me to apply to Ph.D. programs and achieve my goals.
