Lab Manager SDSU
Jeanette graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a B.A. in Psychology. Her interests are in motivational processes and the social and cultural factors that influence belonging, interest, and success in educational contexts. Though she has many interests, she is currently focusing on examining 1) how students from Latino/Hispanic backgrounds think about (in)compatibility between their cultural and academic identities, 2) how course assignments and materials influence student motivations and interest in foundational science courses, and 3) how other people can shape one’s interests and goals, particularly through conversations or anticipated conversations.
When she is not working in the lab, she likes to watch movies, try new recipes, and read. Her favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo.
