Lab Member Photos

Lab photos, Fall 2017

Never let Michael Marks (and his shaky hands) take your annual lab photo.  Missing several people, sadly.

At least we somehow managed to get Collin and Summer in on this one.

 

NMSU Conferences: Graduate Research and Arts Symposium (GRAS), and Undergraduate Research and Creative Arts Symposium (URCAS), Spring 2017

Ms. Belle Castro (who recently completed her master’s degree), presenting the research she did in collaboration with Dr. Gaylene Fasenko and myself, at GRAS.  Belle’s research focuses on how well people are able to interpret and understand primary and secondary emotions in their dogs.

Mr. John DesGeorges, an undergraduate Discovery Scholar working in my lab, presenting his research at URCAS.  John’s research is on transactive memory, and how people are primed to think of computer-related things when faced with difficult informational demands (or are they?).

Lab Group Photo (Fall 2016)

Sadly, due to the rain, we only got a single lab photo this year!  And without a tree to climb, Collin was resigned to climbing, um, the walls.  Shown are my wonderful graduate students, and many of the research assistants on whom we so critically rely!  Back row (left to right): Jersain Silva, Ryan Sams, Arryn Robbins, Collin Scarince, myself, Jorge Sanchez, John DesGeorges, and Summer Lileck.  In front (left to right): Annette Enriquez, Jessica Madrid, Angel Ortega, Andrea Sopata, Emily Ericson, and Karime Zubia.  Missing are Carrie Melia, Alexis Lopez, Natalie French, Izza Jauregui, Zoie Scott, and Steven Archuleta.

I was skeptical of Ileana Ratiu’s poster… which is weird, considering I’m an author.

Goodbye, OPAM conference… it’s been a fun two years, but Jeff and I hope you’re happy to see the back of us.  Don’t worry, we’ll dress alike next year too.
