This summer, four students are working in the Peer Lab, supported by Earlham’s Summer Research Program as well as the McNair Program.
My name is Robert Alba and I am a rising senior at Earlham College. I am majoring in psychology, and after graduation in 2020, I plan to go on to graduate school for a degree in industrial and organizational psychology. I joined the peer lab not only to gain more hands-on research experience but also in the hopes of learning more about perceptions of bullying situations and how various stimuli are interpreted and used to make sense of a situation. I look forward to staying in Richmond this summer and working with my professors and peers.
My name is Rance Albert, Earlham College class of 2021 and a Global Management and Peace & Global Studies double major. My career plan is to go to graduate school and work with policy research in taxation and social security. I applied to work with Rachael Reavis at the Peer Lab this summer because of the effects bullying has on all participants: the one who bullies, the victim, and the bystander. I believe that this summer research will allow us to analyze the data from the eye-tracking study and develop conclusions for Dr. Rachael Reavis to test in the fall.
