Madison Green
Madison Green is a current sophomore at Amherst College, hoping to earn her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a concentration on Development. At the Stress and Development Lab, she is working in the OCEANs study, understanding the underlying impact of socioeconomic status on childhood academic achievement. Within this study, she is responsible for working on second scoring and transcribing the primary interviews with parents. At Amherst, she works in Dr. Carolyn Palmquist's Child Learning and Development Lab, studying how young children between the ages of four and five establish trust, based on the facial traits of certain adults. After graduating from Amherst she would like to earn her Ph.D and study the impact of both socioeconomic status and parent child interactions on children, and if there are any neural or behavioral methods that can mitigate any unnecessary harm. Outside of the lab, she enjoys playing with her dog and taking pictures of nature, specifically the hydrangea bush outside her home.
