Jennifer Sumner '06, Appointed Assistant Professor at UCLA

Dr. Sumner is a clinical psychologist whose research program focuses on understanding how trauma exposure contributes to accelerated aging and risk for chronic disease. "My training as a Psychology major at Pomona provided me with such an amazing foundation for the work that I have done since graduation. The research experiences I had at Pomona--both in class and in Dr. Suzanne Thompson's research lab--prepared me so well for graduate school, and the mentoring I received from the Psychology faculty helped me to hone in on my areas of interest. I'm looking forward to channeling the Pomona dedication to mentoring in my own lab at UCLA."
