Biography

I am approaching the end of my BA in psychology, and it is very clear to me that I will be involved in psychological research in the future. I hope to pursuit clinical psychology in my graduate studies, as I am interested in severe psychological disorders that negatively influence personality and behaviour. It is also important to me to gain a better comprehension of statistical analyses for psychological research, with particular focus on the efficacy of various treatment designs. I am eager to learn more about quantitative methods for treatment of psychopathology. Currently, I am completing my undergraduate thesis on the topic of treatment efficacy for delusions using a meta analysis approach.
