Last summer, Anastasiia Gryshyna was accepted into a very competitive, NSF-funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program, "Growing up STEM: An REU program in discipline-based education research," at North Dakota State University. At Stetson, she served as a Research Apprentice in the department’s Clinical Neuropsychology Lab; was one of two students selected to serve as tutor in the Success Center and served as a teaching assistant in two courses, including Behavioral Statistics, and asked a statistician to mentor her in "R," a new language for statistical computing and graphics.
Anastasiia's professors say she is a hard-working, creative and versatile researcher who put in the effort to make herself a better researcher and student. One professor called her the "best student I've had in years."
As of this writing, Anastasiia works as an environmental scientist but wants to pursue a PhD in quantitative psychology, and hopes to return to Stetson as faculty member one day.
