Daniel Epstein

Daniel Epstein graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2019 with a BA in psychological sciences and human rights. While at UConn, Daniel served as a research assistant in a lab studying oppositional defiant disorder and irritability and wrote his honors thesis on parental approval as a predictor of substance use. During this time, he was also involved in a fundraising organization for the local children’s hospital, participated in several religious organizations on campus, and worked as an overnight camp counselor and intern for a non-profit organization in Cape Town, South Africa. All of these experiences solidified Daniel’s desire to support and serve others. Daniel refined these passions through his recent work at the University of Michigan, where he researched youth suicide, depression, and trauma. In the future, Daniel hopes to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology with research focuses on trauma studies and community-based research.
