Katie Hazlett

Kathleen Hazlett graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 with a B.A. in psychology and a minor in applied statistics. As an undergraduate, she worked with Dr. Edward Chang conducting research to examine perfectionism and psychological adjustment in college students. After graduating, she worked with Dr. Scott Langenecker in the Neuropsychology Department at U of M and began exploring interests in emotion, cognition, and neuroimaging. Kathleen received her M.S. at Marquette in 2012 after completing her master’s thesis, which examined the effects of four positive mood induction procedures with a specific focus on the role of personally relevant stimuli in mood induction tasks. Her current research interests include examining the effects of emotion on various types of cognitive processes (e.g., memory, executive functioning) and evaluating neural and behavioral markers of risk in elders at risk for Alzheimer’s Disease. In her free time, she enjoys trying out all of Milwaukee's great restaurants, cooking, sailing, snowboarding, reading, or relaxing with a good movie.
