Xochitl Cordova - Lab Manager
I’m the lab manager for MID.LA. I received my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Spanish at UCLA (Go Bruins!). I’ve been working in the research field for over 10 years now. I’ve had the privilege of working on many different projects including fMRI addiction research and clinical (medication) trials. I’m excited to be working with infants and toddlers, as I’ve recently become a mommy. My amazing son, Xander, can’t wait to be a research subject himself! Send me an email.
I am a USC senior from Palm Springs, California, studying Occupational Therapy and Spanish. I am a member of Troy Camp, USC's official philanthropy that works to serve the youth around the USC community through mentorship and tutoring. Having a younger sister has inspired me to pursue a career in pediatrics. Send me an email.
I am a sophomore from Long Beach California, studying Psychology and Consumer Behavior at USC. I enjoy skateboarding, taking photographs, and traveling in my free time. I aspire to pursue a career combining my interests in art and human behavior in the future. I myself am a proud research subject at the USC Twin Study as well! Send me an email.
I am a junior from Silverlake, California, studying Psychology with a minor in Sociology. In addition to working at the MIDLA lab, I am also a student supervisor at the USC Bookstore. In my free time, I like to read, play with my chocolate labrador, Cole, and travel. Upon graduating from USC, I plan to pursue a career as a Child Psychologist. Send me an email
I am a senior majoring in Psychology with plans to further my studies in developmental or clinical psychology. My main research interests are children’s perception of traumatic events. Working with the MIDLA lab I wish to obtain as much hands-on experience in this discipline as I can in order to be well prepared when I enter the field as a psychologist. I am also the proud mother of 3-year-old Noah, who is the source of my interests in origins and development. Send me an email.
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where I studied visual art at the High School for Performing and Visual Arts. Though I did not continue to pursue formal education in this field in college, I still enjoy drawings and printmaking today. At the University of Texas at Austin I received my B.A. in Linguistics and Philosophy, concentrating on language acquisition and children’s social cognition. Joining the Developmental Psychology Ph.D. program at USC was my first move out of Texas (although I have always been an avid traveller!). Send me an email.
John A. Madrigal
I am a senior Psychology and English double major at USC. I aim to pursue a career in both clinical and developmental psychology, in the hopes to intertwine these two areas of research in my graduate studies. Specifically, my interests are the emergence of and risk factors for antisocial behavior in children and the pathways that lead to lifelong problems of antisocial personality disorder. I am also the very proud father of 4-year-old Arielle, who has contributed to the development of the studies in this lab. Send me an email.
Luke McGowan - Postdoc, Lecturer
I study the evolution and development of brains and cognition. I have a PhD in neuroscience from UC Irvine where I studied evo-devo neurobiology with Georg Striedter. At USC, my work focuses on the evolution and development of mechanisms underlying human social cognition. When I’m not doing science, I'm out working on my standup comedy routine! Send me an email.
I am a junior Psychology and Neuroscience double major at USC. I aim to continue my graduate studies in Clinical Psychology or Occupational Therapy. My main research interest is to expand the existing research of Theory of Mind and its link to Autism. In my free time, I enjoy being an aunt to my 3-year-old niece, Samantha, and a 1-year old nephew, Joshua. Send me an email.
I am a junior Psychology major from Pasadena, California. As part of the Psychology Honors Program, I am currently doing research on Theory of Mind, specifically false belief understanding in toddlers. Upon graduation, my goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in Developmental or Clinical Psychology. In my free time, I love traveling, cooking, and playing with my bunny, Jack! Send me an email.
