Graduate Students (MS Psychology Program)
I am a graduate from ASU with my bachelor's degree in Psychology and am finishing my second year of the MS Psychology program. My interests lie in understanding the cognitive mechanisms behind implicit bias and the role of implicit biases in decision making.
I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Wyoming and am completing my second year in the MS Psychology program at ASU. I am interested in investigating ways that psychology can be used to answer legal questions, specifically looking at decision making and legal policies.
Undergraduate Research Assistants
I am from Phoenix, AZ and am currently a junior at the University of Arizona in southern Arizona. I'm a psychology major and a thematic pre-law minor with plans in continuing future education in the intersection of psychology and law in a doctoral program. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Neal in this lab over the summer (2018) to further my research experience within the field of psychology and law and get a different perspective on this intersection of study.
I am currently a junior in the Forensic Psychology online program at ASU. I have plans to continue my education through a doctoral program with an emphasis in social psychology. I am interested in continuing research on the phenomena of social contagion and how it may be studied and used in the correctional system. I am very excited to start in Dr. Neal’s lab this summer to gain a better understanding of how, and to what degree, law and psychology intersect in the subfields of forensic and correctional psychology.
I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor's in Psychology. I have plans to return to school and obtain my Master's in Forensic Psychology and pursue a career that works with individuals who suffer from mental health disorders, specifically those in the legal system. Participating in Dr. Neal's lab will give me insight and knowledge needed for the field and will provide hands-on experience in learning how to collect, analyze, and most importantly understand research.
