Lab Manager


Marin Taylor, BA

I first joined the IMPETuS Lab as an undergraduate research assistant in 2019, and became lab manager in 2021. Now, after completing my Honours BA in Psychology in spring 2022, I am continuing my work as lab manager and collaborating with other students on projects related to subjective time, well-being, political attitudes, and more. In my 'free' time, I am a full-time clinical research assistant at The Hospital for Sick Children, but I also enjoy volleyball, softball, and hiking. My goal is to continue my research in graduate school and become a clinical psychologist.

My research interests involve close relationships, hypnotic suggestibility, and social cognition, as well as areas of abnormal psychology surrounding symptom management and treatment. I am looking forward to expanding my research knowledge and interests as a part of the lab. In the future, I hope to pursue studies in clinical psychology.

I am a third year Honours BA Psychology student at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am so excited to be a part of the 2021-2022 IMPETUS Lab team as a Research Assistant. I hope to expand on my knowledge of psychology as a discipline as well as some research processes. My interests in psychology are focussed on personality development and influences, specifically environmental factors. Additionally, I am fascinated by forms of therapy and areas such as psychotherapy and treatments of disorders in the mental-health realm. One of my main goals for my career is to become a clinical psychologist for children.

I am currently a second-year Health Sciences student at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am honored to be joining Dr.Wilson’s lab for the 2022-2023 academic year. I am passionate about all things health and wellness and have immense respect for the thankless work that researchers do to expand the borders of human knowledge. I am hoping to learn more about research while exploring different career pathways.


Brooklyn Ingram, BSc

I am a recent graduate of the Psychology & Neuroscience with a minor in Biology. My research interests currently lie in psychotherapeutic methods, mindfulness, attachment theory and topics surrounding identity and self-perception. Additionally, I am intrigued by the effect of trauma on the brain and personality, as well as trauma-informed approaches to psychotherapy. Outside of academics, I enjoy meaningful time with friends, hanging out with my dog and quiet time watching shows and documentaries. My goal is to attend graduate school to become a registered psychotherapist.

My goals after undergrad include pursuing graduate school in clinical and forensic psychology and working directly to help individuals with mental illness.
