Frances Morales


Graduate Student, Legare Lab
" Sometimes you gotta go backwards in order to move forward. "



Although Frances grew up in Mexico, she is a Texan at heart. At age 17, Frances moved to south Texas where she attended the University of Texas-Pan American, obtaining a B.S. in Biology with a double minor in Chemistry and Spanish.  After graduation, she entered a post baccalaureate program at Baylor College of Medicine and later studied in Germany before deciding Psychology is the field which interests her most.

In 2012, she received a M.A. in Experimental Psychology from UTPA and subsequently joined the Langlois Social Development Lab. Outside her research interests, Frances gets pleasure from working out, cooking and baking, engaging in multicultural affairs, and going on road trips.
