If you were not a psychology professor, what would you be doing and why?
I would love to be a zookeeper.
What’s your favorite thing about being at Georgetown?
I do love the students. I love their motivation and all of the interesting questions they ask.
What’s your favorite song on the Top 40 charts right now?
It’s not that recent, but I love “Let It Rock” by Kevin Rudolph and Lil’ Wayne
If a spaceship landed right in front of your house at this moment, would you get in?
I would say no. Mainly because I really like my life right now! I’m not too keen about doing something to potentially mess that up right now.
Although Marsh pursues many lines of research at the same time, her studies address a set of interconnected questions related to the way that people perceive and respond to others’ emotions and nonverbal behaviors.
