Join us in highlighting our Graduate Sycamores!
I'm from Herten, Germany. I graduated with a degree in English and Social Science from the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. A fellow student and friend of mine had completed the MA Linguistics/TESL program and kind of “lured” me here to ISU. My studies have been fun but stressful (of course). I am a teaching assistant teaching German 101 in my 4th semester now. In my free time I like watching baseball, playing guitar, and traveling. I have been to 19 different States so far, with 7 more coming after I graduate in May.
Clinical Psychology PsyD
I am originally from Cleveland, OH. I came to Indiana State University because of the strong mentorship, collaborative and supportive nature of the clinical psychology doctoral program. ISU also had a great reputation in clinical psychology, with a high licensure and internship rate. Thus far, I have enjoyed my time at ISU; I feel very supported by my advisor, Dr. Liz O'Laughlin. I also have been actively involved in clinical research through IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis, and in ISU's Psychology Department. Interesting fact: I enjoy traveling and running! I ran my first full marathon in Wisconsin last year, and I am signed up for a couple races around the U.S. this upcoming year, as well.
Ph.D. Earth Science
My focus is on biogeochemistry of Indiana waterways. I study water quality using North American river otters as a sentinel species. If I am not in the lab, I am somewhere outside near water! I grew up in Northern Indiana living right on a major river so river ecology and water quality has always been a big part of my life. I received my B.S. in Biology at ISU and then started graduate school in the Earth and Environmental Systems department. One of my favorite parts of being a grad student is getting to teach Intro to Environmental Science Lab and inspiring others to care about the Earth.
Masters of Social Work
I have had an incredibly busy, but positive and rewarding graduate experience. I graduated with my BSW in May from ISU, and am in the Advanced Placement program for my Masters of Social Work degree. I am focusing on working with the addictions population and absolutely love what I do. I'm currently a counselor at Indiana State University's Student Counseling Center. I am from Plainfield, Indiana, and I'm vegan! I have a food blog that I love to create unique and fun vegan, cruelty free meals.
I'll be working for Johnson Controls as a software engineer after graduating. As for something exciting I have worked on a Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) research project associated with Deep Learning, with another ISU Computer Science graduate student last semester. Where we attempted to generate a new Bob Ross painting from low-resolution paintings with limited processing power.
I am from Terre Haute, Indiana and came to ISU for the incredible scholarships and opportunities. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Accounting and Marketing in May 2019. Now I work as a Graduate Assistant for the Sales and Negotiations Center and Business Analyst at KAR Global. A fun fact about me is that I LOVE to travel and have been to 15 countries!
