The Rivera Research Lab is a trainee-led community comprised of undergraduate and graduate students and research associates from psychology and related disciplines. With mentorship, students lead an array of studies that represent cross-cultural collaborations across various health sciences, academic institutions, and psychological organizations.
Students are supported in designing and executing their own projects and receive guidance, resources, and mentorship in developing research products that include conference proposals, professional presentations, and academic publications. The Lab seeks to engage and empower students with the research and leadership skills necessary to pursue their research initiatives and gain experience with qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research.
The Lab is committed to being inclusive and respectful of all aspects of trainees’ identities, such as culture, nationality, age, gender identity, race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and socioeconomic status.
We currently conduct research initiatives in English and Spanish and are open to collaborations with students worldwide. The Fall 2022 cycle is OPEN as we begin to prepare research initiatives for internationally recognized psychology conferences, including the American Psychological Association 2023 Convention and the 2023 Congreso Interamericano de Psicología.
We welcome students from different backgrounds, research and academic interests, and level of experience. Contact us for more information!
