Shelby Seyburn is the newest member to the team for the Fall 2015 semester. She is currently a junior at Oakland University. Her major is in psychology and minor in Nutrition. She joined this particular lab because she found PTG to be a continuously growing area of research that needs more understanding. Her main area of interest among PTG is in adolescence. She has always been interested in this particular age group and found that there are numerous areas with undiscovered information. Generally, Shelby would like to explore the different mental states and personalities of adolescence before and after they experience trauma, along with looking at the different levels of trauma. Trauma is such a broad definition, which can be looked at in many different ways. After undergraduate school Shelby would like to pursue her education in psychology by attending graduate school, focusing on adolescents. Shelby can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shelby was also very excited to read about the work Professor Kanako Taku and the PTG lab members are conducting in the Oakland Post. She is eager to begin working with the lab and continue helping their current research on high school students. To read more about the article visit www.oaklandpostonline.com.
