Jen completed a research project that examined if the pattern of cortisol reactivity to stress changed across adolescence, and if so, was the change related to the timing or tempo of puberty. The project, titled 'Assessing the stability of psychobiological stress reactivity during adolescence: growth curve modelling of cortisol responses to laboratory stressors' was conducted while Jen was a Health Research Board Summer Student Scholar.

Jen is one of the research team working on the HaBiTS Project in 2019, and will complete her BA in Applied Psychology in 2021.
