I am a senior studying psychology. I’ve been interested in how others perceive the world since I was in middle school, but I am specifically interested in autism spectrum conditions because I was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum as a child. After graduation I plan to go on to graduate school and work to become the leader of a lab investigating perceptual and information processing differences in people on the autism spectrum and perhaps in people with delusions, hallucinations and related symptoms. Outside of academics I am interested in drawing and painting, video games, keeping up with research and reading and writing speculative fiction! I am very happy to be working in a lab where everyone is so passionate about producing thoughtful and meaningful research.
