Graduate Student Lab Members
|May Reinert is a first year graduate student at Pace University in the 60 credit Mental Health/Substance Abuse program. She completed her BA in Applied Psychology from Pace University, Pleasantville, NY. She has been working the SHARRP Lab since 2014 and loves psychology, because it allows her to learn something new everyday. She has always been interested in genetics since her mother’s diagnosis of breast cancer. She will be starting her own genetics research project in the SHARRP lab in Spring 2015. The purpose of the study is to replicate and extend the findings from Sweeny & Legg (2009) and to compare the new FDA-regulated DTC (Direct-to-Consumer genetic testing) with traditional in-office genetic testing. May is excited about this new adventure and ready to learn! In her downtime, away from school and her project she loves to run, travel to amusement parks and spending time with family and friends.|
Undergraduate Student Lab Members
|Juliette is currently a junior, applied psychology major at Pace University. Juliette became interested in psychology once she started taking a few psychology classes at Pace. These classes began teaching her how psychology can be applied to our everyday lives and interactions. Through psychology she learned a lot about herself, too. Juliette had a great psychology research experience over the summer with Dr. Legg. She was awarded a Dyson summer research award and researched bad news delivery in romantic relationships/break ups. After having such a positive experience, she is excited to be a part of the SHARPP lab this year! Juliette plans to go on to graduate school for a master’s in mental health counseling.|
