Eric Desmarais, Psychology


I'm currently a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at Washington State University. I work with Dr. Masha Gartstein studying temperament development in infants and toddlers, with a special interest in cross-cultural differences. I grew up in Sunnyside, WA, which is a small farming community. I applied for the URLEND program to expand my understanding of neurodevelopmental disorders and am not participating the Autism Enhancement track. Ultimately, I hope to practice in a primary care setting that will allow me to see both short- and long-term clients as well as provide outreach services to the community. I am most excited about the URLEND opportunity for interdisciplinary work and can’t wait to collaborate with specialists in fields that I don’t typically encounter in a rural setting!
