Graduate Student Researcher
UC Irvine

 "I am very thankful for the research opportunities that were available to me at Whittier. At the start of my sophomore year, I was invited by Professor David Volckmann to collaborate on his research on emotional imagery, covert attention, and verbal memory. Although I did not know it at the time, this personal invitation from Professor Volckmann wound up being the spark that would set me on a lifelong pursuit of research." Read more.
