Victoria SanchezVickee Sanchez

Vickee graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2018 with bachelor's degrees in Biology and Psychology. She was an undergraduate research assistant in the Baby Lab at UMB researching language development in typically developing infants. She was also a research assistant and project coordinator in the Child Development lab working on projects to assess and develop universal screening methods and classroom intervention strategies for toddlers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Her thesis project analyzed the language acoustics of cries of toddlers with ASD and investigated this method as an early screening tool. Vickee is thrilled to continue with translational research and hopes to pursue a PhD in Speech Language Pathology and a career in research in the future. Outside of the lab you might find her tending to her plant collection, rock climbing, or taking pictures of her cats.
