Anne Laurita

Graduate Resident Fellow
625 University Avenue

Originally from Mendham, New Jersey, Anne grew up alongside her younger sister, Mary, and has always enjoyed competitive swimming, family beach trips, and playing the piano and French horn. Anne was an Alice Cook House resident and Student Assistant during her time as an undergraduate in the College of Human Ecology. As a returning Graduate Resident Fellow, she looks forward to fostering a "home-away-from-home" again with this year's Cook House residents. As a fourth-year PhD candidate in Human Development, Anne conducts research on neural representations of close others and age-related changes in patterns of brain activity associated with adult attachment relationships. This year, she is writing her dissertation, teaching, and planning for her next career move upon graduation.

Anne cherishes spending free time with friends and family and is excited to learn about (and from!) the many new members of our Cook House community. As she finds her happiest balance when being active, Anne can often be found running, walking, and swimming around campus. She loves learning about art history, current events, student health and wellness in higher education, and anything else she can wrap her mind around.

Anne's favorite flavor of ice cream? Mint chocolate chip!
