Three students, Zoë Shelton ‘18, Emma Miklinski ‘17, and Chloe Depew ‘19, and two psychology faculty members, Dr. Allyson Graf and Dr. Ping Zheng, recently attended the Eastern Psychological Association Annual Meeting in Boston.

The students presented a project titled “Young Adults’ Technology Purchase Decisions: Self or Other Influenced?” This project, which began as a course assignment for experimental psychology, was further developed under the mentorship of Dr. Graf. Their project focuses on the technology buying habits of the millennial generation.

During the annual meeting, Dr. Zheng also presented a poster titled, “Effects of Trauma Type and Emotion on Overgeneral Autobiographical Memory.”

 Students and faculty attended poster sessions, talks, and networking events at the regional conference.
