What I liked
I have enjoyed being able to lead a team and work on an independent research project where I have submitted to present, and will submit for publication. During the summer we started a large data collection in collaboration with the Tucson Unified School District to collect survey data in sixth and ninth grades. We collect our pilot survey data and it was so cool to use what I have learned in other labs into my new position and develop surveys, protocols, and build rapport with the school district. I was the program coordinator for this specific project so it was amazing to be able to take charge of a project and make it my own.
