Isabella Muddiman (she/her) is a Senior Psychology major at Ball State University with minors in Criminal Justice and Criminology, as well as Spanish. This is her first semester as a research assistant with the P2 Lab, where she is excited to be coding data for projects conducted in collaboration with the Youth Opportunity Center in Muncie. She will also be working on a project examining cultural considerations that may be needed when interpreting MMPI scales. Isabella is ready to work and learn more about what it means to conduct research.

Last semester, Isabella was an intern at the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, in the Traffic Safety Department. She gained invaluable experience working in a professional office setting and taking over big projects, including making and editing the grant contracts for the 2023 fiscal year. Isabella has also had several part-time jobs during her time as a student, which have helped pay for her education. This semester, Isabella is hoping to attend a study abroad opportunity over spring break to Keele University in Great Britain for her Comparative Justice Systems course, which would allow her to learn more about their criminal justice system, in addition to experiencing a new country and culture.

After graduating, Isabella is planning on joining the workforce, but ultimately plans to pursue graduate level education in either Forensic Psychology or Psychology and Law.

In her free time, Isabella enjoys reading, watching movies, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
