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.

Exploring Identities Through Multimedia

As my final project for a study abroad program I did in Rabat, Morocco, I filmed an experimental documentary of a 20-year-old Moroccan woman to capture her life, dreams, vision, and identity. I am very interested in exploring various identities and the way different aspects of society, such as culture, gender, language, class, race, and religion affect identities through film and other media. If you are interesting in creating and portraying unique stories and people through multimedia (film, podcasts, music, art, etc.), I would be happy to help you!

Psychology Interventions

As a Cognitive Studies, I became extremely proficient at reading and understanding psychology research studies, and even designing and implementing my own research studies. One research study I completed as an undergrad was called "Effects of Student Satisfaction with Exam Grades on Motivation and Study Strategies." If there is a psychology intervention you are curious to test, I could help you build a strong foundation for your study by helping you find existing literature and understanding it, and then designing and implementing your research study!
