This week, we interviewed Lucas Campbell, Research Assistant in the Speech Neurophysiology Lab, to learn more about his work and interests. Lucas is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan and joined the lab this spring. He assists in running and collecting data in our EEG studies. Lucas currently plans to pursue medical school for psychiatry in the future. He's also big on taking road trips to explore new places!

Read our full interview with Lucas below!

What is your role in the lab? 

I am a new research assistant for the lab assisting on all of our EEG studies and data collection.

What excites you most about your work?

I am most excited (and scared) about working with children as this aspect is completely new to me and different from what I have done before.

What do you like to do in your free time? Do you have any hobbies?

In my free time, I usually play video games, go on walks, cook, and travel. I most recently went on a road trip to Niagara Falls in Canada (see photo above), but I have also gone on road trips to Mackinaw, MI; Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; Omaha, NE; and Norfolk, VA to name a few.

Besides the unknowns around stuttering, what’s another scientific mystery that you find interesting?

Other than the unknowns of stuttering, another scientific mystery I find interesting deals with how personality factors could potentially affect one's likelihood for psychopathology.
