Graduate Student, Behavioral and Brain Sciences Program

Taylor Hobgood is a first-year graduate student in the Behavioral and Brain Sciences PhD program, with a concentration in Developmental Psychology. She is currently a member of the Infant Lab at UGA. Taylor completed her Bachelor of Arts with honors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with majors in Psychology and Sociology and a minor in Women and Gender Studies in 2020. As an undergraduate, she worked at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute in the Brain and Early Experiences (BEE) Lab under Cathi Propper, PhD, and Roger Mills-Koonce, Ph.D. She helped to lead data collection for a longitudinal R01 study funded by the National Institutes of Health that examined the effects of poverty on infants’ cognitive, emotional and behavioral outcomes. She has also worked closely with sociologist, Laura Krull, PhD. Together they are authoring publications examining LGBTQ discrimination in churches across the United States, and more broadly, how churches in America socialize children. Together these experiences have combined broad research interests of infants, disadvantaged youth, family, and socialization. 

During Summer 2021, you can find Taylor working for Pandora and SiriusXM as a Consumer Insights Analyst Intern!
