Lauren Robinson



Lauren graduated from New York University (NYU) in 2022 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. During her time as an undergraduate student, Lauren worked in the Cognitive Development Lab at NYU participating in research that examined children’s intuitive theories of academic achievement outcomes and explanations for within-class ability groupings. Following graduation, Lauren worked as a research associate at NYU’s Child Study Center, where under the supervision of Dr. Castellanos, she contributed to a project that aimed to detect functional brain changes associated with the acquisition of new organizational skills through the delivery of an empirically evidenced treatment. Additionally, she worked on a clinical trial designed to assess the usage and optimal dosage of cannabidiol (CBD) as a potential treatment for core autism symptoms. Currently, Lauren is a Sara S. Sparrow Fellow in Clinical Neuroscience in the McPartland Lab. In the future, Lauren hopes to become a clinical psychologist for children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
