Mariana Preciado is a 4th year Ph.D. student in social psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles. She did her undergraduate degree at Yale University where she became interested in deconstructionism, the self, and the nature of “truth.” At UCLA, she does research on the aspects of our social environment that impact the way we interpret our experiences and think about ourselves. Currently, she is doing research on the factors other than actual sexual experience that impact the way people think about their sexuality. Mariana is writing for Psychology in Action because she loves science, and she wants everyone in the world to know how to appreciate and love science, too.

Psychology in Action allows Yalda to combine her two passions, science and storytelling, and to communicate incredible psychological research to people who want to learn a little bit more about human behavior but don't have the time or the statistical training to read a journal article.
