Spring 2019 was bittersweet here at the Gray Lab as we celebrated and then said goodbye to many important and wonderful members of our team!
Congratulations to Peter Balcke, Samantha Perry, Chloe Christian and Zoe Cebulash, our accomplished graduating seniors! Each had an important role in keeping the Child and Family Lab running successfully.
To highlight just some of their accomplishments during their time at Tulane, Zoe graduated with Magna Cum Laude, Chloe Cristian graduated with a successful senior project “Maternal Arrest and Its Implications for Maternal-Child Mental Health,” and Sam Perry graduated Cum Laude as a Newcomb Scholar, successfully defending her Psychology and Neuroscience honors thesis: “The Association Between Maternal Adverse Childhood Experiences and Mother-Child Physiological Synchrony.” Sam also received the Newcomb College Institute Award for Exceptional Character, The Rosa Cahn Hartman Award in Psychology, The Neuroscience Faculty Award, an Oak Wreath Award, and the Newcomb Internship Grant Award.
We are also proud to see Justin Carreras, fifth year doctoral student, heads off to Momentous Institute in Dallas for his internship year.
Lastly, we congratulate our incredibly talented lab manager Hannah Swerbenski as she begins her PhD in Developmental Psychology at Rochester University. You will be missed!
