College of Arts and Sciences Senate’s Research Award for 2023

Dr. Madison Silverstein, Psychology, College of Arts and Sciences has expanded her research to address the psychological effects of the COVID pandemic and how it has impacted those with pre-existing mental and physical health issues, as well as now supervising a student’s research regarding the residual cognitive 'fog' that COVID sufferers have reported. Since starting at Loyola, she has published 15 peer-reviewed articles and, to date, has presented 33 papers and posters at professional meetings (with two more already scheduled for 2023), many (25) with Loyola undergraduates contributing to the research in a variety of ways and included as co-authors. Dr. Silverstein has also included students in research on her other focus, which is implementing and evaluating educational programs to increase knowledge of professional opportunities for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other persons of color in psychology and related fields, for which she has received several small grants from various respected organizations, as well as receiving national recognition for this program, which is not limited to Loyola students, but enrolls students nation-wide. Her level of research productivity in these critically important contemporary issues made her deserving of recognition via the Senate’s Research Award for 2023.
