Claudia Brandt Guerrero
Claudia graduated with degrees in Spanish and Psychology from the College of Idaho in 2011. She was born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and is fluent in Spanish and English. Currently she is teaching English in Korea on the EPIK program! Her interests include developmental psychology and counseling for kids, as well as spiritual development in psychology. In addition, she loves to watch Korean TV shows, and listen to Korean Rock and Pop music as well as Latin music.
I received my B.S. in Biology and Psychology in 2010 from The College of Idaho. My interests in psychology were piqued during my dental internships when working with patients particularly those with dental anxiety. As I pursued my psychology major my studies expanded into the field of research and ultimately I was hired as a lab manager in The Cognitive Plasticity Lab. My main research focuses were exploring the effects of media multi-tasking. As an undergrad and alumni, I presented at Pychonomics in St. Louis 2010 and Seattle 2011 with Dr. Minear. It was awesome! Currently, I am dental student at the University of Kentucky pursuing my D.M.D. My background in psychology and working in the lab have proven to be invaluable experiences in the field of dentistry. In my spare time I enjoy seeing the sights of Kentucky, Keeneland Horse Racing, and catching up with my friends and family in Idaho. Ultimately I hope to return to Idaho to practice dentistry.
My interests lie primarily in clinical psychology, specifically in acquired brain injury and the neuropsychological assessment of such injuries across the lifespan. After gaining research experience in Dr. Minear’s Cognitive Plasticity Laboratory, and graduating from The College of Idaho, I began working as a Research Assistant in the Department of Neuropsychology Research at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore Maryland. In the near future, I hope to attend a doctoral program in clinical psychology and ultimately assess the neuropsychological functioning of individuals with acquired brain injuries and research the effectiveness of methods aimed at reducing the secondary neurochemical cascades associated with traumatic brain injury.
Monica is pursuing a career in the wine industry.
I received my B.A. in Psychology and I recently moved to Erie, Colorado to pursue my dream of furthering my education in Cognitive Psychology. My decision to pursue psychology was guided by Dr. Minear during my junior year at C of I where I developed a love for Cognitive Psychology and performing research. I am considering pursuing an advanced degree in either Sports Psychology program or a Cognitive program with a sports focus. I am currently a research assistant at the University of Colorado at Boulder where I am working under Keith Lohse and Shaw Ketels and our advisor Dr. Alice F. Healy. I love being active and involved with any type of extreme sport.
Mark is currently taking a break in Hawaii, his home state. He is interested in the relationships between cognitive performance and video game expertise.

I plan on pursing an MBA after my graduation from The College of Idaho. When I’m not in class or the lab I like to be with my dog, Bode, who has taught me how to enjoy the simple things in life like a good nap or just going on a run. I also enjoy playing volleyball, basketball, and downhill skiing.
