“I started in the Social Psychology PhD program in 2009, working with Dr. Lora Park. During my first few years in the program, I was able to establish a solid foundation in social psychology, research methods and statistics, both through classes and working one-on-one with my mentor and more senior students in the program. I also started developing my own line of research studying the self and its links to social motivation and well-being.
I am the lab director of a media research lab in Chicago, IL. In this position, I examine the effects of media exposure on people’s non-verbal responses such as their physiological activity, eye movement, facial responses and implicit attitudes. The decisions I make every day about the design and interpretation of research are informed by the knowledge I gained at UB.” – Lindsey Streamer
