I am an undergraduate student completing my degrees in Education Sciences and Sociology. Currently I have been assisting in research focused in early child development and child safety through the perspectives of parents from various backgrounds. I also work at UCI Children’s Center working with children 2 to 5 years old. I hope to discover more about how a child’s development is impacted by their parent’s view on parenting tasks.
Fun fact: I enjoy discovering different music in my spare time and trying different types of food.

I am an undergraduate student majoring in Education Sciences and minoring in Spanish. I have been doing research for the past year on different topics in early childhood development. I also work at a nonprofit after school program in Santa Ana where I assist low-income students with planning their high school career and ensuring that they graduate from high school. Having done research and working with low-income populations I have decided to further my higher education and I am currently applying for Master’s programs in School Psychology for the upcoming school year.
Fun fact: I have played the violin for over 10 years and I enjoy spending my free time with my family.

I am a third year undergraduate student majoring in Education Sciences. My two specializations are Early Childhood Learning and Development and Children’s Learning and Development. I will be assisting in research for the first time this quarter so I am still very inexperienced. However, I am very excited to try new things and I hope to learn a lot from participating in research.
Fun fact: I often dedicate my extra time volunteering at the public library, where I help out with children’s storytime and family storytime. This summer, I painted the entire cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a 20-foot tall BFG to commemorate Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday.

I am a third year, undergraduate student at UCI majoring in Fine Art and minoring in Education Sciences. I am very intrigued by early child development as well as social-emotional interactions between preschoolers. Therefore, I am hoping to graduate early this year and continue my education, specializing in early childhood development/ education (and am also hoping to pursue a multiple-subjects teaching credential through the MAT program here at UCI). Having only participated by taking education classes, I am really looking forward to assisting Ying in her research this quarter, as a true first step in being active in the field of education sciences.
Fun fact: I love going to the beach with my 18 month old daughter. I also love watching old movies.
