Lauren is a PhD candidate studying experimental psychology at the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. Her current research focuses on how 3-12 year old children use technology like Alexa, Google, and the internet at large to think and learn about the world around them.
Lauren’s science communication experience includes outreach through the American Psychological Association’s Science Student Council (APA SSC) and contributing to “Corners”, a blog about teaching spearheaded by the Society for the Teaching of Psychology graduate student teaching assistant (STP GSTA) steering committee. She is also involved with the flagship Communicating Science Conference (ComSciCon) organizing committee.
When not in the lab or organizing a SciComm initiative, Lauren enjoys binge watching arthouse horror movies with her wife Madison and rescue pup Molly.
