My name is Jade Yonehiro. I am a 1st year Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado- Boulder studying Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience. I received my B.A. in Psychology in 2015 and my M.S. in Experimental Psychology in 2018, both from Arizona State University.
I am fascinated with understanding attention and memory. I'm particularly interested in understanding how they operate in real-world scenarios (e.g., social interaction, over extended periods, during problem solving) and how these scenarios shape the development of cognitive abilities. Ultimately, I plan to apply my research to the improvement of therapy and intervention strategies for individuals with social and attentional disorders (e.g., autism, attention deficit disorders, etc.).
Outside of school I spend a lot of my time with my pets and family, drawing, and gardening. I spend an inordinate amount of my time taking photos of my dogs (of course they have their own IG), watching documentaries on YouTube, and playing board games.
