Dr. Stacy Lopresti-Goodman joined the Marymount community in the fall of 2009.

In addition to teaching undergraduate psychology classes at Marymount, Dr. Lopresti-Goodman actively engages in research on behavior in human and non-human animals. Currently, she is conducting observational research on chimpanzees living in sanctuaries to understand the enduring impact that confinement, social isolation, and physical abuse in various settings has had on their psychological well-being. She has presented her research at academic conferences nationally and internationally, including at the American Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting, Minding Animals, and the International Society for Ecological Psychology Conference, and she has published in peer-reviewed journals such as Neuroscience Letters, Behavioral Sciences, Psychology and Education, and Applied Cognitive Psychology.
