Roya Baharloo, who has been a Research Assistant at the READi Lab since June 2016, is heading off today to pursue another adventure! She will be starting a Developmental Psychology PhD program at University of California, Berkeley under the mentorship of Dr. Fei Xu. There, she hopes to study the early social development of infants, especially in the context of autism. She has played an integral role in the READi Lab over the past two years, including the early and continuing development and coordination of the Screen-Refer-Treat Study and the Social Attention Study. She has also administered behavioral assessments for the ImPACT Study and has the unique ability to calm even the fussiest of babies! We will miss her dearly, but we cannot wait to see all that she accomplishes as a young scientist.
