Salutations! My name is Alfredo J. Bolaños and I am currently a third year Psychology major & TRIO Scholar at UC Riverside. I joined the lab in the Winter of 2017 as I have a great interest in Developmental Psychopathology. In addition, I would like to research more about how children, teens, and young adults adapt to adversities that occur in life and finding successful behavioral interventions to help teach & develop healthy coping mechanisms. After I graduate, my goal is to definitely obtain a Master’s degree and possibly a PhD in Clinical Psychology or School Psychology. I hope to one day contribute more LGBTQIA+ topics into Psychology research as it has historically been underrepresented.
