Alexandra is interested in understanding how the mind effects the body. Her research primarily focuses on how lifestyle factors such as exercise and stress influence the immune system in cancer patients. She joined Psychology in Action because she is passionate about participating in the community and feels that communicating research findings is a great way to connect with others. Outside of school, she loves everything outdoors and loves to read novels. She’s currently reading A Visit from the Good Squad by Jennifer Egan and up next is Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.
