Research Assistant, UNC Chapel Hill, Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute
Hello! My name is Tova Cohen, and I am currently a Staff Research Assistant in Dr. Cathi Propper’s Brain and Early Experiences (BEE) Lab at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In this lab, we are exposed to new faces every day, which means my team encounters people of all backgrounds, socioeconomic upbringings, ethnicities, races, and identities. It is of the utmost importance to me and my colleagues that every interaction with a participant is one of respect, comfort, and empathy. I am extremely passionate about efficient, yet effective, communication. If something doesn’t feel or seem right, communication is key to working towards a symbiotic solution. Furthermore, communication makes our lives easier and more enjoyable! In this role, I hope to expand communication among all different types of communities, as well as do my part to make Flux a more approachable experience for all.
