Graduate Student Sam Pegg Receives the Outstanding Student Researcher Award – Congratulations!
Samantha Pegg, a doctoral student in the lab of Autumn Kujawa, receives the Outstanding Student Researcher Award from the Society of the Science of Clinical Psychology (SSCP). Her research examines how emotional and social processing contributes to the development of mood disorders, specifically looking at the relationships between reward processing and depression.

Well deserved recognition of her research! Congratulations!
