We asked the members of the 2021-2022 Student Committee to answer some questions about themselves to help you get to know who they are and what they do.
What is your school, program & year? UMass Lowell, 4th year in Applied Psychology and Prevention Science PhD program
Why psychology and the law? I want to help reform the criminal justice system in some way.
If you could only watch 3 movies or tv shows over and over for the rest of your life, what would they be and why? New Girl, Jon Oliver
Is cereal soup? Maybe. Because I love it.
What is a quote you like and who said it? “My attitude, my outlook, I realized that it matters” — my favorite band’s lyrics
What is your favorite thing about your current graduate program? That I’m almost finished!
If you were not in graduate school what would you do? I work full time! For the Center for Open Science. If I didn’t have to work, I would hike all day every day.
If you could invite five people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would it be and why? Probably five of my Twitter friends that live abroad because I’m too online for my own good.
What advice do you have for those applying to graduate school? A lot. Specifically, how to reach out to advisors ahead of time, successful letters of interest, etc.
