  Ketrin (Keti) Lengu is a third-year Ph.D. student in Clinical Psychology at EMU, with an area of emphasis in Assessment.  Prior to obtaining her M.S. in Clinical Psychology at EMU, Keti completed her undergraduate education in Psychology and Biology at Case Western Reserve University.  Keti’s clinical interests are in neuropsychology and in providing comprehensive assessments to individuals across the developmental lifespan.  Her research is broadly geared towards improving current diagnostic and assessment tools in psychology. Most recently, Keti’s work in EMU’s Developmental Brain and Behavior Lab has been focused on a project that is seeking to identify the early neural correlates of social functioning in infants using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). She is excited to continue to help with research that aims to identify early neural risk and protective factors which she hopes will ultimately improve psychological outcomes for generations to come.
Tristin Tristin Nyman is a second-year graduate student at EMU pursuing a Master's degree in General Clinical Psychology. She completed her B.A. in Psychology and Neuroscience at Carthage College in 2013. She is currently completing a practicum at PAR Rehab Services and has previous experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders as a behavioral technician. She is assisting on several of the Developmental Brain and Behavior lab studies, including PediaTrac and utilizing functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). She enjoys participating in research and learning about the brain-behavior relationship, as well as, working with children and their families to improve our understanding of child development.
Casey Casey Swick is a second year Master's student in the General Clinical program at EMU. She graduated with her B.S. in Neuroscience from Bowling Green State University in 2014. Casey is interested in understanding the development of neurodevelopmental disorders. More specifically, she is interested in early identification of risk factors that lead to later diagnosis. Casey is currently a practicum student at PAR Rehab Services, where she hopes to get lots of clinical assessment experience.
