Destyn Jones

Major: Psychology

Hails From: Oakland, Calif.

Research Interests: My research interests are forensic psychology, correctional psychology, impulsive behavior, self and social judgment, logical reasoning, and intergroup interactions. I am currently working on developing a study on suspect misidentification and police lineups in hopes of finding a better way to conduct the police lineup process so there are less false positive identifications.

Personal Interests: I love volunteering at hospitals working with Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) babies as a cuddler, shopping, watching crime shows, painting, and hanging out with friends.

Favorite Scientist: My favorite scientist that inspires and motivates me is Katherine G. Johnson because she managed to navigate through a discriminatory society in order to accomplish her goal of creating the calculation to send astronauts to the moon. She shows me how with resilience, dedication, hard work, and perseverance, anything can be achieved.

Fun Fact: In the future, I want to work for the FBI as a special agent.
