Lena Wadsworth
Graduate Student
Psychology and Neuroscience

I graduated with a B.S. in Biology from College of Charleston in 2012, and an M.A. in Experimental Psychology from the College of William and Mary in 2018. I'm a first-year graduate student in the Social Area of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder and new member of the Evolution and Social Cognition Lab. I'm interested in pursuing questions related to the evolved psychological mechanisms underlying social emotions, cooperation, and morality, and in understanding if, and how these mechanisms vary in function across cultures. I am also passionate about statistics, and interested in the philosophy of science.
