B.A. – Neuroscience – Swarthmore College – Swarthmore, PA
In 2019, Kenzie Himelein-Wachowiak received a B.A. in Neuroscience with a minor in Spanish from Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA. She conducted her senior honors thesis in the EEG/ERP lab, where she analyzed the electrophysiological markers of the Implicit Association Test. Since graduating, she has shifted towards clinical research. Currently, in the Technology and Translation Research Unit, she assists on a project that uses Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) to monitor and predict drug use in opioid users, and she is also exploring the reasons for low uptake of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention among American women of color. Kenzie has plans to pursue a Ph.D in clinical psychology, where she hopes to research the intersection of mood and anxiety disorders, substance use, and women’s sexuality.
