Mayah Palmer, B.Sc Hons (she/her)
We are so lucky to have Mayah joining the EMBody Lab as a 1st-year MSc student in the Clinical Psychology program at Queen's! Mayah graduated from Queen's in 2022 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biopsychology, completing an Honours Thesis in Biology examining adaptation to environmental stress in a nonhuman model organism. She became our first-ever Lab Coordinator from 2022-23, bringing a wealth of knowledge in biology and psychology and special interests in inclusive research methods. As a graduate student, she plans to study the physiological and emotional costs of adaptation to stressors, particularly experiences of racism and discrimination, in people holding multiple minoritized identities.
