This past academic year, PhD student Cailee Nelson has been mentoring undergraduate student Madelyn Armstrong in the NERD Lab. Madelyn presented her research at UA's annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (URCA) Conference, where she was awarded "First Place Work in Progress" for the "Education" category. In collaboration with Dr. Laura Morett, director of the the NERD Lab, the group has been researching "The effect of transitioning to online classes on students with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder” (also the title of their project). Congratulations to Madelyn, Cailee, and Dr. Morett on their work.
