Lindsay is the Lab Manager for Dr. Lin Bian’s Little Thinkers Lab, which studies gender, racial stereotypes and social comparison in young children. In this role, Lindsay leads a project studying children’s empathy towards individuals in poverty. Her current avenue of research explores children’s beliefs about emotional pain amongst the impoverished, and their perception of these individuals' sense of control. Lindsay plans to pursue a graduate degree in clinical psychology and hopes to study interventions for high risk youth and families.
Lindsay also works part-time at Pathways, Inc., where she provides psychosocial outreach to disadvantaged local youth. Since moving to Ithaca in 2018, Lindsay has worked for the Mental Health Association of Tompkins County and Family & Children’s Services.
Lindsay graduated summa cum laude from the University of Colorado, Boulder with her Bachelor's in Psychology and Sociology. She has always loved research and has spent 6+ years in research labs. Lindsay has previously examined mindfulness in 9 to 13 year olds, inhibitory control in 3 to 4 year olds, as well as tested the validity of the Weapon Identification Task for her honors project.
