Graduate Research Assistants

Kaelin Kinney

My name is Kaelin Kinney. I received my B.A. from the University of Louisville followed by a year of work at Centerstone as a therapeutic aide before starting my graduate career in the Experimental Psychology PhD program here at UofL. My current research interests include infant cognition and developmental disabilities. In my free time I love practicing agility with my dog, cuddling with my cats, hiking, and spending time with my family.

Undergraduate Students

Jeraan Fernando

My name is Jeraan Fernando. I am from Union, KY and I am a current senior at the University of Louisville. I am studying Mathematics, Neuroscience, and Biology and I have had some past research experience in some biology projects. My plan is to do an MBA after graduating. Then I will decide on what program I will do (either medical school or another graduate program). I enjoy watching the NBA and reading adventure stories.

Olivia Richards

My name is Olivia Richards and I am a sophomore Psychology major. After I complete my undergrad, I hope to take a year to travel and get some work experience before going back to school for a PsyD in clinical psychology. I am very interested in child and adolescent development and mental health and hope to specialize in this, and maybe one day have my own practice. I love going to concerts, exploring new cities, going to the gym, and hanging out with my bunny, Crunch!
