Carlos is a senior Psychology and Spanish double major pursuing minors in Global Poverty and Latin American studies.
Broadly, his research interests include parenting, teaching, developmental psychopathology, developmental neurobiology, the effects of socioeconomic status on behavioral/mood disorders, and the intersection of ADHD and depression in adolescents.
He is also interested in understanding mental health disorders from a multicultural lens to better understand the role of culture in mental health.
In the future, he hopes to pursue a PhD in Clinical Psychology, but before applying to graduate school he plans on taking a gap year or two to gain more research experience as a postbaccalaureate fellow.
Outside of research Carlos is very involved on campus. He is a Resident Assistant for Oakland Hall, a student coordinator for Maryland Images Campus Tour Guides, an Experience Leader for Alternative Breaks, and a Teaching Assistant for Multicultural Psychology.
