Hey Psych Students!

In an effort to create community and foster connection, professors are now hosting “Hang out with a Professor” get togethers ….. just to hang.  This is a great way to meet other psychology students too!  Come to chat, talk about life, share ideas/experiences, play games, and get to know the community.

So, feel free to jump onto any of the hourly meetings from the list below. (You do not need to be currently taking a class with any of them)

    My lab does research on how we use physical media to think and learn. The classes I teach focus on equipping students to work with data and think about what they mean. I care deeply about empowering students from all backgrounds to gain computational literacy and participate in shaping the future of the social sciences, technology, and policy. Come and hang out to talk about how to teach yourself new things, getting involved in research, applying to grad school, and/or exploring your interests outside of the classroom.
