I’m delighted that this summer, Samara Green will join us in Hamburg as a RiSE intern. The RiSE internship program allows undergraduate students from the United States, Canada and the UK to spend three months working with a research group in Germany. Samara just finished her fourth year of the combined Biology and Psychology degree (BSc) at the University of Victoria in Canada. She has been working as a research assistant in the Visual Cognition Lab, where she helped run behavioural and EEG experiments. Samara is also interested in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and has helped develop an iPad app that helps children with ASD develop skills in identity recognition, eye gaze, and emotion recognition.
This summer, Samara will be assisting with pharmacology and MEG data acquisition, learn more about programming and electrophysiological data analysis, and explore Germany.
