Undergraduate Students

Madisen Clark


I am a second-year student majoring in Psychology and minoring in Special Education at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I am currently participating in Dr. Thompson’s Lab researching variations in judgments of spousal and romantic partner infidelity related to the experimental manipulation of internal and external causes. Beyond this, my research interests remain broad as I continue to further my education in the field of psychology. However, after being introduced to social psychology by Dr. Thompson, I developed an interest in the field and would love to continue my education in social psychology.

Jeramiah Gruendemann


I recently graduated from UW Oshkosh and am now enrolled in a School Psychology Graduate Program at Fresno Pacific University. My research interests center around the psychosocial aspects of effective counseling as well as the genetic basis of psychiatric and neurological diseases. While at UW Oshkosh, I was involved in research examining the effectiveness of campus counseling centers across the University of Wisconsin System, environmental effects on phenotypic expression in plant models, and penetrance of clinical symptomatology in individuals with Huntington’s disease. 

Jocelyn Hart


I am a research a graduate from UW Oshkosh majoring in Psychology and Anthropology. My primary research interest relates to consensual nonmonogamy and the endorsement of a sexual double standard. I also have additional research interests related to forensic anthropology.


Sarah Stefaniak


I recently graduate from UW Oshkosh and am currently enrolled in a graduate program at Cardinal Stritch University. My research interests were not really formed until I met Dr. Thompson and was accepted into her lab. Since then, my primary research interests have been related to examining the attitudes and judgments people hold toward those engaging in nontraditional relationship  structures, particularly consensual nonmonogamy. I also have a secondary interest related to neuroscience and traumatic brain injury (TBI), particularly the prevention of TBI in athletes.


Rebecca Tolfa


I am currently in my fourth year at UW Oshkosh, majoring in psychology. My primary research interests include discrimination among minority groups across several settings. In fact, I am currently working on a project with Dr. Thompson designed to assess gender minority students’  experiences with discriminatory behaviors and sexual assault here at UW Oshkosh using the Campus Climate Survey.
