Undergraduate Research Intern, Carolina Population Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Taylor Hargrove is an undergraduate at UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in Psychology and minoring in Religious Studies. She has been a research intern working with Dr. Lisa Pearce at the Carolina Population Center since the summer of 2009. She has gotten experience in writing literature reviews, analyzing data with SAS, and learning the process of writing a scholarly research article. Her research currently focuses on social and environmental factors that shape adolescent attitudes toward family living arrangements in the Chitwan Valley region of Nepal and household composition later in life. She is using the Chitwan Valley Family Study survey data from Nepal to study these attitudinal processes. After graduation, she hopes to pursue graduate studies in either Demography or Psychology.
