This week I was presented with an amazing opportunity from one of my supervisors. I was asked to collaborate with him on a final paper of one of the studies that was run in the lab. Although I was not present for the entire duration of this study, I ran all of the statistical analyses based on the raw data from the study and will help my supervisor to compose the final paper.
Although it is not definite, I am confident that this paper will be published, granting me my first publication! Not only have I learned an immense amount, gained a ton of hands-on research experience, and created many meaningful connections in the world of psychology research at Mount Sinai and beyond, but I may be able to leave my own real and concrete mark on the psychology world on a broader scale. This has proven to be an amazing and beneficial experience so far.
