Ryan Brady, a graduating senior in Psychology, is one of three UNC Commencement Spotlight students.
The Commencement Spotlight recognizes three graduating seniors as they reflect on what UNC meant to them.
Ryan Brady found UNC associate professor of psychology Kelly Giovanello’s work in human memory particularly fascinating. He became an assistant in her research lab the summer before his sophomore year.
“Dr. Giovanello has been a huge factor in the progress of my academic career,” said Brady, a psychology major in the College of Arts and Sciences and a cognitive science minor, who is from Davidson, N.C. “I’m the person in class who asks a lot of questions. I don’t like to take things at face value if they don’t make sense. I could come to her with all of the questions I had, and if she didn’t know the answer, she’d point me in the right direction.”
