All congratulations to Meaghan Perdue, who has been selected for a 2017 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. This prestigious award comes with three years of funding. Great work, Meaghan!
Meaghan Perdue, a new Ph.D student in Developmental Psychology, will be joining the lab this fall semester as well as the IGERT program as a fellow. She comes to us most recently from Dr. Nadine Gaab’s lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. Meaghan has experience studying both typical and atypical early reading development using multiple methods. For more info on her, see our people page. The Landi lab enthusiastically welcomes Meaghan!
Emily Baron, an RA for the LandiLab at Haskins for over two years, left this summer to pursue a MSW at Boston College. She will be dearly missed, but we congratulate her on this next step. Great work Emily, and good luck!
