Vilija P

- Research Program Mentor

MA candidate at New York University




My name is Vilija and I am a current graduate student with a passion for psychology and criminal justice. As a therapist, I believe in mentoring with a nonjudgmental, open-minded outlook. Currently, I work with a diverse group of individuals, who are exploring their interpersonal relationships and passions. I am also interested in the legal system and how mental health and law intertwine.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Mental Health in Teens

Technology and teen mental health problems. I can help students create podcasts that showcase their knowledge in an entertaining and informative way. You will gain skills in reading scientific literature, drafting a script, and editing your podcast. I am also available to guide students in research projects. In this project, you will write a scientific review-style paper on a topic of your choice.

Teaching experience

I have previous experience as a neuroscience mentor to freshmen students at the University of South Carolina.
