Sydney Kilgore graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2022 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychological and Brain Sciences with a minor in Applied Psychology. During her time as an undergraduate, she worked in a lab focused on factors that affect students’ academic performance and success. Recently, she completed a year-long honors thesis that tested the effectiveness of social belonging interventions on students-of-color’s academic persistence. She is interested in aging and the brain and hopes to investigate the social and psychological factors that affect healthy aging, such as gentrification and poverty. As an integral part of the UCLA Easton Center, Sydney is excited to combine her passion for racial equity with her academic interest in aging.
