Kashvi Mullick, Psychology
Faculty Mentor: Matthias Mehl
Research: Kashvi’s work in the Naturalistic Observation of Social Interactions (NOSI) Lab has focused on a large NIH-funded project within which we use the Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR), a mobile sensing device that samples ambient sound bites, to study adolescents’ readjustment after a suicide attempt. Kashvi has brought to this project a distinct aptitude for research evidenced by the thought-provoking questions they ask and by their ability to complete tasks with impressive attention to detail and efficiency. Kashvi also has brought to the project a willingness to be vulnerable about their own experiences with mental health that allows them to make contributions that would otherwise not be possible.
