Jessica Bodford, PhD

Jessica Bodford is a Research Manager at Facebook.

Jessica Bodford went to college to become a journalist, but she soon fell in love with psychology, specifically social psychology. She did well in college, but she found the idea of the GRE to be frustrating and daunting. Undeterred, she spent the summer of her senior year working as a secretary and studying for the test, and she did well enough to have her pick of schools.

She chose ASU because of its interdisciplinary focus (and it's climate), and she entered our Ph.D. program expecting to become a professor. However, along the way, she wrote a paper that would completely change the course of her life.
