Michaela Simon

simonI’m a fourth year undergraduate at UT and I study Psychology, Women’s Studies, and Biology. Most of my time at the university has been spent in Dr. London’s lab working on several different forensic developmental projects. The research that has most interested me in the past was a project I worked on for Monica Lawson, a graduate student in Dr. London’s lab, about children’s memory for conversations and their suggestibility. Starting this fall (2016), I am getting the opportunity to work on my very own thesis with Dr. Francis’ lab. For this thesis, I am interested in the relationship between childhood anxiety and parental rearing.
