Garrett originally hails from Los Angeles, California. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Developmental Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2019. Prior to joining the FABLab, he worked as an undergraduate research assistant in the Cognitive Development and Neuroimaging Lab under professor Kathleen Thomas, studying brain and cognitive development from infancy to adolescence. He has also completed work in Megan Gunnar’s Developmental Psychobiology Lab, the UMN Center for Twin and Family Research, the UMN Center for Addiction Neuroscience, and back home at UCLA in Adriana Galvan’s Developmental Neuroscience Lab. His primary interests in psychology and neuroscience include understanding the neural mechanisms of social cognition and behavior and the evolutionary underpinnings of these developmental mechanisms. He hopes to attend graduate school and obtain a PhD so that he may conduct his own research one day. Outside of academics, Garrett enjoys playing music on his guitar, ukulele, banjo, and harmonica and riding mountain bikes.
