Hi there! I’m Rachel, a fourth year CogSci major and Linguistics minor. When I’m lucky and have free time, I enjoy baking and searching for friendly cats to pet. During my time at Cal, I spent a summer studying abroad in Paris, had a UX researcher internship, worked in four labs,  and am currently pursuing my CogSci honors thesis. After graduation, I plan on going to graduate school for linguistics and then maybe entering the tech field as a linguist or UX Researcher. My favorite classes so far have been Comparative and Historical Linguistics (Ling 130) and Intro to Logic (Philos 12A).  Feel free to stop by and ask me any questions about research positions, study abroad, or anything else!

Major Courses Taken: Philos 12A (Yalcin), Math 16A (Slaman), CS61A (Hilfinger), MCB C61 (Presti),  Philos 3 (Noe), Math 55 (Stankova), Sociol 150 (Powers), Ling 100 (Garrett), CogSci 1 (Li), MCB 160 (Feldman, Isacoff, Ngai), Ling 130 (Garrett), Ling 110 (Lin), Ling 115 (Hyman), Ling 109 (Gahl), Anthro 160AC (Briggs)

Hello! I’m Kayla, a fourth year Cognitive Science major. I came to Berkeley from Southern California as a transfer student in the Spring of 2017. When I have some free time I enjoy reading, cooking, and watching films. After graduation, I plan on working in UX research and design to study practical applications prior to attending graduate school for Human Computer Interaction. My favorite CogSci courses have been Perception (CogSci C126) and Brain, Mind, & Behavior (MCB C61). If you have any questions regarding getting requirements done in a condensed amount of time as a transfer, research opportunities, finding your niche in an interdisciplinary major such as Cognitive Science, or anything else, please feel free to stop by and chat!
