Meghan Jain ’18 -MA candidate in Neuroscience and Behavior
Hi! My name is Meghan and I am a Master’s candidate in the Neuroscience and Behavior program from Chicago! I completed my Bachelor’s here in the NS&B program as well! I focused my master’s research on the post-concussive effects seen on reading patterns in student-athletes. Outside of campus life, I love to cook and be outdoors!
Samantha Schreiber ’18 -MA candidate in Psychology
Hi my name is Samantha and I am currently a BA/MA student. I got my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. For my Master’s, I have been conducting research over the past few years looking at compound word processing and individual differences in reading processes. This research has culminated in a Master’s thesis on compound word processing, performance on the Compound Remote Associate test, and Individual difference measures. In my free time I am a Peer Health Coach, and I enjoy knitting, doing Zumba, and playing with my dog!
Undergraduate Research Assistants
Kate Babcock ’21
Hi! My name is Kate and I am a junior Neuroscience and Behavior, Biology, and Science in Society triple major from Stratham, NH. I recently joined the lab and am currently working on a Word Experience project looking at age of acquisition and word familiarity. Outside of lab I like to ski and spend time with my siblings.
Allison Galante ’20
Hi! My name is Allison. I’m a senior Neuroscience & Behavior and Science in Society double-major. I am interested in the neuroscience of reading and the translational applications of reading research. In the lab I have worked on studies examining morphological effects in word processing using our eye-tracker and questionnaires. I am also an Academic Peer Advisor and hospice volunteer! In my free time I enjoy reading, yoga, and watching sci-fi movies.
Chaltu Rashid ’21
Hi my name is Chaltu and I am a junior (’21) Psychology major from Oakland, CA. I am a QuestBridge scholar and a McNair fellow, and right now in lab I am working on the Word Experience Project. Some interests that I have include photography, softball, and yoga. One club that I am very passionate about is the Ankh, the student of color publication, so please check out our publication when you get the chance!
