Logan Smith

B. A., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


Logan is originally from a rural town in North Carolina called Mount Airy and earned an associate’s degree from a local community college in 2016. From 2016-2018, he attended UNC Chapel Hill and earned a degree in psychology and history with a minor in education. It was there that he met his now-wife, Jenny, and developed interests in research and clinical psychology under the mentorship of Dr. Eric Youngstrom. After graduation, Logan worked on several research studies with longitudinal cohorts at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC. Throughout this time Logan also worked with the nonprofit Helping Give Away Psychological Science (HGAPS;, which is an organization focused on dissemination of high-quality information about psychology. Logan’s past research interests and projects have focused on mood/affect and measurement, and he hopes to develop and diversify these interests while in the lab, which he joined in the fall of 2020. In his free time, Logan enjoys spending time with his wife and playing with their kitten, Zuko.
