Meredith Watson recently graduated with a B.S. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Rochester in upstate New York. She was also born and raised in Rochester, so she’s excited to finally live somewhere warm. At UofR, she worked for Dr. Loisa Bennetto in the Developmental Neuropsychology lab where she studied neurocognitive and communication deficits in autism. Her main research interest is the linguistic development of children on the autism spectrum. When she’s not in the lab, she enjoys acting, singing, dancing, and crafting.
