Elizabeth Janey

Ph.D. Student

Elizabeth received her B.S. in Psychology from the University of Iowa in 2021 where she researched the twitching movements that occur during REM sleep in mice and rats at developmental ages. After graduation, she worked with Marc Berman as a lab manager for two years before entering the UChicago Ph.D. program in Social Psychology. Her current research focuses on how different environments and infrastructure, such as roads, affect well-being, how individuals with diverse identities benefit from greenspaces, and how we can capture well-being across urban and rural environments.
