Welcome to VLab!


The mosaic above features some Spelman students that have worked with me as research and/or teaching assistants under the umbrella of the virtual lab, VLab.  


All research assistants must obtain Institutional Review Board certification and conduct a wide range

of tasks including: 

literature reviews (e.g. journal articles and eye-tracking solutions) 

programming (e.g. surveys) 

data collection (e.g. field experiments) 

data analysis (mainly using Stata

preparing (poster) presentations 

traveling to the field to collect data 

and presenting at/attending conferences (including Spelman Research Day).  


Student assistants evaluate their experiences using this anonymous survey.

I periodically also tweet about research assistant experiences.
