“The cognitive sciences allow us to understand how we organize objects in our brains, for example. To me, it’s specially fascinating that a bilingual individual must stock twice as many words as a unilingual person, while taking into account very distinct language structures. Thanks to the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), I got to work closely with researchers like Prof. Fennell who specializes in language acquisition in infants.”

“This diverse and versatile program allows me to explore human functioning through a variety of perspectives, ranging from sociology to neuroscience. I have always loved the hard sciences, but I also really love interacting with people. In a sense, this program delves as far as possible into the sciences, while still being a social science.”

“Psychology is about human behaviour and interaction, and research in psychology can cover such a wide spectrum, from the forces that guide altruism and community solidarity, to the treatments that can ensure a healthy brain as we age.”
