Three Bellevue University Students Present Original Research at Regional Psychology Conference
Three Bellevue University undergraduate students presented original research at the 93rd annual Rocky Mountain Psychological Association Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico in April.
Gabriella Batchelder presented “An Experimental Investigation Into the Relationship Between TikTok Consumption and Reports of Psychological Symptoms.”
Paige Holdsworth presented “Auditory Perception of Pedestrian Direction in Three-Dimensions.”
Brooklyn Hundt presented “The Impact of What You See and What You Hear on the Perceived Severity of Contact.”
According to Associate Professor of Psychology and Faculty Sponsor Dr. Mike Russell, the students' poster presentations culminated their comprehensive work on their individual topics.
“Presenting at academic conferences is a fantastic opportunity for our students and their learning and development,” said Dr. Russell. “From identifying their research topics and reviewing the existing literature to designing a novel study and collecting and analyzing data, they demonstrated their expertise in the field of psychology.”
The Rocky Mountain Psychological Association and the association’s annual conference advance psychology as a science, as a profession and as a means of promoting human welfare.
