Abby Hazlett ’05



After graduating from LC and bidding a fond farewell to BHS, Abigail completed her doctorate in social psychology at Northwestern University. Her dissertation research focused on how individual motivation orientation shows up in group settings (think a collaborative school or work project). She spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis and decided to return to Portland in 2012. She has since stepped off the academic path to pursue a career in data science, but she never stopped applying the lessons she learned by studying psychology. Abigail even returned to LC to adjunct teach some psychology courses and Jerusha and her found time to co-author a book chapter on teaching. Abigail is still based in Portland and tries to attend lab events whenever she can. She still has her original BHS mug, circa 2002. Once a labbie, always a labbie.
