Grace’s research centers around investigating why misconceptions arise by comparing the cognitive competition between explicit and implicit processes and children's trust in digital voice assistants (i.e., Alexa, Siri) by utilizing both mouse tracking and eye tracking technology. The Reuter Fellowship, provided to one Kent State University student per year, will provide Grace with an academic year non-service appointment of $12,000 to allow for full-time work on her dissertation. 

Along with her research, Grace is an advocate for open science and the improvement of online behavioral research methods which led her to become a volunteer for FindingFive, as well as becoming the lab manager of Kent State's Educational Psychology Lab.
