Mira is a third-year graduate student in psychology at Princeton University. In her graduate work she's interested in the role of dynamic communicative cues (e.g. intonation and facial expressions) early in life and how they shape learning in the moment and over the course of development. Before starting her PhD program, Mira earned a B.S. in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University and a M.A. in Psychological and Brain Sciences from Dartmouth College. Before going to college in the US, Mira grew up in her home country of Bulgaria.
"Over the course of graduate school, I've come to appreciate the importance of mentorship. I've developed a deep interest in learning about best practices in mentoring for promoting graduate student wellbeing. I continue to be impressed by GradFUTURES' expanding programming and their dedication to creating resources for healthy and stress-free professional development in graduate school!"
