Sara Erlichman has had the opportunity to explore research areas that interest her most as a master’s student at the University of Kansas: media psychology and popular culture. Her research interests focus on how and why individuals develop parasocial relationships, and how it can be used for prosocial causes. In addition to teaching undergraduates, Sara works with the journalism and fiction psychology departments to conduct research to present at academic conferences. As she thoroughly enjoys graduate school, Sara also loves spending time with her corgi, Bear, watching hockey and experimenting with various artistic approaches.
