Sophie Brunt

  • Ph.D. Student


Following her undergraduate studies, Sophie Brunt worked as an ABA therapist at a residential school for kids with ASD and other developmental disabilities. She transitioned to a research assistant position at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where she worked on the Autism, Behavior, and Child Development (ABCD) project investigating a screening and assessment protocol within the Early Intervention system to identify young children at risk for ASD. In the fall of 2020, she began her graduate study in the school and clinical psychology doctoral program under the mentorship of Professor Micah Mazurek. Her research interests include the experiences of caregivers of children with ASD as well as disparities in diagnosis and treatment of ASD among underserved populations.

She is happy to connect with prospective students, particularly first-generation college students who are interested in discussing the graduate school application process.
