Assistant Professor, Higher Education

“The hands-on research experience and the broader scientific perspective I gained as a graduate student in the Department of Psychology at the University at Buffalo helped to prepare me for my current position as an Assistant Professor in UB’s Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences. The training I received fostered my passion for science, encouraging me not only to succeed but to excel in my chosen field, and provided me with a strong foundation for my current research investigating the neural controls of food reward and other motivated behaviors.” – Elizabeth Baase

Masters (MSW) Student, Social Work

“As a psychology major at UB, I took advantage of the many opportunities and courses available. I became a member of Psi Chi—The International Honors Society, a teaching assistant for an introductory psychology course, a research assistant for a psychology lab, and a tutor for various courses. The Department of Psychology staff and my fellow psychology majors created a learning environment that was both enriching and supportive. With the encouragement of various professors and advisers, I was able to challenge myself and dream big.”  – Neaha Aamir
