Ms Chelsea Roff

BS in Psychology, May 2011

Ms Chelsea RoffChelsea Roff is an honors student in psychology and has just completed her second year of studies at the University of Texas at Arlington. She is conducting her 2009 Summer LSAMP research under the mentorship of Dr Daniel Levine and Dr Timothy Odegard, and this research will be the basis for her honors thesis. Chelsea’s research is focused broadly on the interplay between emotion and cognitive processes, and she is particularly interested in how psychological experiences manifest at the physiological level. Chelsea is the President of UT Arlington’s Psi Chi (Psychology Honors Society) chapter and is also an active member of the President’s Sustainability Committee and Environmental Society. Outside of her academic activities, Chelsea enjoys practicing yoga, spending time outdoors, and playing with her border collie. Upon completion of her BS degree, she hopes to pursue a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. Ultimately, Chelsea aspires to one day to prosper in a career that will allow her to cultivate her love of learning and apply the discoveries derived from basic research to real-world problems.
