I am an incoming MA student in Clinical Psychology at UBC. I’ve been with the MI Lab since 2019, studying how autobiographical memory manifests as a function of various factors, such as emotion and time. I am interested in how past experiences inform mental health outcomes, and hope to integrate the cognitive science of memory with clinical interventions in the future. Outside of the lab, I thrive at making tea and then forgetting it exists.
