Sarah Reaves is the research operations coordinator for the Center for Educational Informatics. She joined the NC State wolfpack in May 2019.
Sarah has been involved in scientific research in several capacities: as an undergraduate researcher in a memory and metamemory lab and an attention lab, a graduate researcher in a memory and aging lab, as a research assistant in an alcohol research lab, and as a coordinator for a nation-wide study investigating adolescent brain development. Sarah’s scientific interests are broad and ever-growing. She is always excited to start a new project.
Sarah’s goals include helping the center run smoothly, continuing to contribute to scientific research where possible, and becoming the coordinator equivalent of organizational celebrity, Marie Kondo.
