Jeff Love began his interest in research as an undergraduate psychology major at Seattle University. While completing his degree, he interned in a research lab at Harborview Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences that explored PTSD and comorbid condition symptoms found in victims of trauma. Upon graduation, Jeff’s internship was turned into a full time position where he progressed over time to being the senior Research Coordinator. During his six years working in the lab, Jeff’s interests gravitated towards assisting in grant submission preparation, creating and monitoring IRB and DSMB protocols, and disseminating findings to policy makers and other stakeholders. In spring of 2016 he joined the College of Education as a Research Support Specialist where he gets to flex those skills assisting faculty and graduate students in creating IRB applications and also serve as backup to the College’s Grants Manager. When not at work, he is an avid dog lover who spends his time researching the healing elements of human-animal bonds, volunteering at dog rescues, and being an awesome parent to his two dogs and cat.
