Past Lab Members

Pedro Abreu

Former Research Assistant

Pedro completed his B.A. in Psychology from Lehman College, and was involved in other leadership positions including an internship with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (BOLD) program. Pedro wanted to gain research and clinical experience with children, as he works to continue his graduate studies in developmental psychology. He is particularly interested in learning more about the impact brain development has on children’s behavior. He hoped that by becoming a research assistant with the ISLAND lab, he would learn more about the roles of a researcher and learn more about infants' neurocognitive development.
