I am currently a PhD student in the Clinical Psychology program at SFU. I am particularly passionate about clinically meaningful research that can inform practice and benefit our communities.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I came to SFU as an undergraduate transfer student in the Behavioural Neuroscience program. I finished my BSc and went on to complete my MA in Clinical Psychology this summer. I chose SFU because of the excellent training program in neuropsychology

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

My current research is focused on traumatic brain injury, particularly among individuals who may be overlooked when it comes to recovery support. My dissertation work is focused on the potential barriers to care among BC youth who sustain head injuries outside of sport and the consequences of head injury among adults living in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I am very grateful for the excellent mentorship that I have received in both research and clinical training at SFU and I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of teams engaged in community research. I have also met some incredible people at SFU that I hope to be lifelong friends and colleagues.

HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR FUNDED AWARDS?

I was fortunate to be awarded a CIHR CGS-D scholarship to support my work investigating brain injury in BC youth. I feel very lucky to have access to incredible data collected by the McCreary Centre Society and hope to give back to our community with the research supported by this award.
