Emily Ayala

I am originally from Stratford, CT and I pursued my undergraduate degree in Sociology at Coastal Carolina University and graduated in December 2019. I moved to Charlotte about 2.5 years ago to pursue my master's degree. I got a Master's Degree in Sociology at UNC Charlotte and recently graduated in May 2022. My graduate research focused on: The Relationship Between Disability Status and Academic Outcomes with Race and SES as Moderators.

I have been working with autistic children over the past two years as a registered behavior technician and I am excited to transition to the classroom setting and join the Lab community! 

In my free time I like to play/watch soccer, go to the gym, and try new restaurants.
