UCLA Graduate & Post-Doctoral Researchers


Graduate students involved in the UCLA Middle School & High School Project are students from both Psychology and Education disciplines. Many of our graduate students have been involved with the project for numerous years and are essential in overlooking data collection and mentoring the undergraduate RA's. Not only are they highly dedicated to UCLA MSDP, but are emerging scholars in their field and leaders in their respective departments.
