Kinjal graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Psychology, B.A. in Exercise and Sports Science, and a minor in Neuroscience. As an undergraduate research assistant in the CIRCLE Lab she assisted on the Youth Emotion Study, a neuroimaging study investigating the neural markers of suicidal ideation in adolescents, and is enthusiastic to continue her work on this study. Kinjal will also be working on the WHALE Study, and hopes to gain more research experience before attending graduate school. She is particularly interested in learning more about psychopathology and its relationship to maltreatment, deprivation, and threat. Kinjal also enjoys yoga, hiking, and cheering on UNC athletics!
