I am a senior undergraduate majoring in Psychology. My research focuses on mechanisms underlying antisocial behavior and callous-unemotional traits, including spontaneous perspective taking. I am currently working on a paper looking at perspective-taking and psychopathy, funded by an FMUR Fellowship. I will conduct an honors thesis on an empathy intervention for children with high levels of CU traits beginning in Fall 2020. I ultimately hope to attend graduate school for clinical psychology.
I am a junior studying Cognitive Science with a concentration in computation and cognition, and considering adding another major in either Science, Technology and Societies or Health and Societies. I am interested in child socioemotional development and the intersection of computation and the developing mind. I have been in the EDEN lab since my freshman year when I completed a PURM fellowship.
I am a senior majoring in Psychology and minoring in Hispanic Studies. I previously worked in the Developing Minds Lab studying the neural basis of pre-verbal number sense in children. I am interested in antisocial behavior in children, particularly the role that ADHD and callous-unemotional traits play lifespan trajectories of antisocial behavior. In the future, I plan to obtain a PhD in clinical psychology to work with children.
I am a junior double majoring in Psychology and Criminology. I am primarily interested in exploring the etiology of psychological disorders and the different ways in which these disorders manifest in individuals, sometimes predisposing to antisocial and/or criminal behavior. In the future, I hope to pursue a PhD/JD in psychology and law, which would allow me to continue to integrate my passions for these two highly-complementary fields.
I am a junior majoring in Psychology and Mathematics, with a minor in Urban Education. I am interested in the developmental course of conduct and personality disorders. I am interested in how education can reduce behavior problems in children with aggressive and callous-unemotional traits. My long-term goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in psychology to teach and conduct research. I have been in the EDEN lab since my freshman year when I completed a PURM fellowship.
I am a junior planning to major in Psychology with minors in Biological Basis of Behavior & Health Services Management. I previously worked as a research assistant in the Boundaries of Anxiety and Depression Lab. My research interests are focused on transdiagnostic approaches to treat anxiety and depression, as well as the policy implications of mental illness classifications in the context of American healthcare. Recently, I have developed an interest in the genetic risk factors that underpin antisocial behavior. In the future, I hope to pursue a graduate degree in clinical psychology.
I am a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania planning to major in Psychology. I have previously worked in the Division of Endocrinology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia testing a text messaging intervention in youth with diabetes. I am interested in cognitive and emotional development in children, with a focus on antisocial behavior and autism. My other academic interests include Japanese language and fine arts. In the future, I hope to pursue a graduate degree in psychology. I have joined the EDEN Lab as part of a PURM Fellowship.
I am a sophomore planning to double major in Cognitive Science and Computer Science. I am primarily interested in the development of behavioral problems in children, along with the relation between computation and psychology. I have joined the EDEN Lab as part of a PURM Fellowship.
I am a junior majoring in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. I am intrigued by the application of computation to the study of psychology. I am primarily interested in research regarding the etiology and future implications of CU traits in children. I hope to one day contribute to the clinical treatment of these traits and their accompanying behaviors.
I am a junior at the University of Pennsylvania majoring in Psychology with a minor in Anthropology. I am interested in the development and treatment of psychopathology in children as well as comorbidity of psychiatric disorders. Prior to joining the EDEN Lab I began working as a research assistant in Dr. Ruscio’s Boundaries of Anxiety and Depression Lab. In the future, I hope to pursue a graduate degree in clinical psychology specifically working with children and adolescents.
I am a junior double majoring in Cognitive Science and Criminology, and am also considering adding a major in Psychology. I am interested in the development of antisocial behavior and criminal activity, specifically how environmental factors such as parenting can contribute to psychopathy. I hope to pursue my JD/PhD in psychology and law to continue to explore these topics and work to reform the criminal justice system through both academia and the legal system.
