Almost two years ago, I began working with Dr. Kertz. During my time as lab manager, I helped her setup the lab and figure out the ins and outs of the department. We started with only two students and have grown to six graduate and eight undergraduates students (and counting...). I have had the pleasure of seeing several different projects in various stages along the way. We have accomplished so much in the past few years! It has been quite an adventure from figuring out what to call ourselves to how to write and submit research applications to moving lab space across the building. I have really enjoyed my time with the lab and look forward to watching it continue to grow and expand over the coming years. I want to wish all the best to our new lab manager, Kimberly Stevens, as she takes over in the next few weeks. Thanks to all those who helped make our lab what it is today! And of course, congrats to those who graduated! ~Alana
NEWS AND EVENTS
Incoming graduate students to SIU's clinical psychology program Fall 2019
Dr. Kertz is planning to add a new graduate student to her lab in Fall 2019. Although SIU does not operate on a strict mentor model (meaning students are free to move between labs and mentors), fit with research lab interests is important. Dr. Kertz is currently on sabbatical at Washington University in St. Louis.
