I grew up in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia and completed a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Psychology at Mount Allison University in May 2020.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I chose SFU for the Law and Forensic Psychology program and because I have family in the Lower Mainland. SFU provides me with a program in a field of psychology that I love and a chance to live in BC around my extended family. 

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

My research looks at the influence that seeing social media profiles for potential suspects of a crime has on the ability to identify a perpetrator from a lineup.

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

Even though my time at SFU has been completely online I have been enjoying the fact that I have still been able to connect with other incoming psychology students. I have been fortune enough to TA with some other incoming psychology students, and have been able to connect with others through classes we share as well.

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

This year I am the recipient of a SSHRC award. It is an honour to have received this award in the first year of my MA degree, and it has positively impacted my time at SFU so far by allowing me to have time to focus on research and my studies.
