Alexandra O’Donnell

Alexandra O’Donnell will be graduating as a dual-degree student from Rutgers-Camden with a bachelor’s in Psychology and minor in Sociology in May 2014. As an undergraduate, she was in Phi Theta Kappa National Honor’s Society and Psi Chi, the International Honors Society for Psychology. She has been working alongside Dr. Duffy in his lab since spring 2013, and began working with Dr. August in spring 2014. She is currently involved in Dr. August’s Diabetes Experiences Study along with numerous humor preference projects with Dr. Duffy. She is happy to have the pleasure of continuing to work directly under Dr. August for the duration of the master’s program and wants to continue focusing her research in health psychology, with main interests being how stress and social relationships effect an individual’s health behaviors. Allie is extremely excited to begin the master’s program here at Rutgers.
