Julaine Zenk is a post-doc in the Graduate Student Life office through the 5+1 program. She defended her dissertation in Cognitive Psychology in July which focused on moral decision-making in remote warfare. During her time at Notre Dame as a graduate student, she worked with the office of Grad Life for four years on Graduate Orientation and was an active member of AWIS as the Psychology representative. She also was a fellow of the EL-STEM, now LASER, program which focuses on ethical leadership in academia.

Julaine is from the Michiana area after spending most of her life as an Air Force brat which brought her to multiple European countries as well as various states in the US. She is a proud band nerd and is in her seventh year participating in the Notre Dame marching band where she plays the piccolo and even had a stint as an Irish Guard last fall. She is excited to be spending her postdoc year in the office of Grad Life and looks forward to working with students to make their time as grad students fulfilling.
