Megan Rosamond Gunnar, PhD
Institute of Child Development
Associate Director, Center for Neurobehavioral Development
Adjunct Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

Fourteen of her previous trainees, from undergraduates
to current trainees to those of whom have established careers in academia. Megan is an ambassador for women and trains young female scholars to assert themselves and strive for the highest achievements, I could not think of anyone better to guide young women in academia. Dr. Gunnar is an amazing mentor who respects, understands, motivates, and supports students with diverse backgrounds. I am not the first BIPOC student who has benefited from Dr. Gunnar’s mentoring, and I am sure I will not be the last. I have not found a single professor since that I would place in the same category as Megan Gunner. She is the epitome of mentorship and scholarly activity.
