My name is Melanie Pugh and I am currently a senior here at KU. I am pursuing psychology in the hopes of becoming a counselor. I wish to help people manage and maintain close and supportive relationships with others therefore, I am fascinated by Dr. Gillath's Lab. I joined the lab to gain knowledge of the interacting factors in interpersonal relationships, as well as to gain research skills and experience. Outside the lab, I enjoy spending time with friends, photography, and reading.
