Maya Subramanian (she/her)
Maya is a senior at Lexington High School, who is planning to pursue a sociology degree in college. After taking an introductory child psychology course at school, Maya was inspired to learn more about psychology and its interdisciplinary nature. For the past few years, Maya has been working on publishing a paper for an original experiment, which led her to appreciate the value of research. Through this experience, as well as her time at the lab, Maya has become interested in exploring the intersectionalities between psychology and ongoing social issues through experimental means. In particular, she hopes to identify how scientific practices can be utilized for broader social purposes.
In addition to her role at the Stress and Development lab, Maya loves working with children. She is a tutor for preschool/kindergarten aged kids, and loves to volunteer at local community events. Her exposure to children’s behavior has provided her with a broader context by which to explore psychology.
Outside the lab, Maya is an avid writer and reader. She loves to play the piano, paint, and cook.
