Emily May graduated from Marquette University in 2012 with a B.A. in psychology. At Marquette she worked in the ADHD Lab under the direction of Dr. Alyson Gerdes, assisting to create and validate a culturally appropriate measure of ADHD for use with Latino families. Since graduating, she has enjoyed working with the Mental Health Disparities Lab at Marquette. Emily’s independent research projects have focused on acculturation, including the role of linguistic acculturation in relation to parental self-efficacy, as well as traditional gender role attitudes in Latino adults. At the graduate level, she hopes to continue exploring discrimination, cultural variables, and mental health. In her free time, Emily enjoys singing, biking, reading a good book, rooting for the Chicago Bears, and spending time with friends.
