I am thrilled to be continuing in the IMPACT lab as a third year doctoral student. I joined the lab in 2013 as a research assistant after completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph. My primary research interest is in the role of interpersonal relationships on trauma recovery. For my Masters thesis, I examined the associations between social interactions (supportive and unsupportive) and PTSD symptoms following a traumatic event. For my doctoral dissertation, I am examining the associations between unsupportive social interactions, dysfunctional posttraumatic cognitions, and PTSD severity over time following trauma exposure. I am involved in various other projects in the lab including a trial of Cognitive Processing Therapy for which I am a fidelity rater, and an open trial of Cognitive Behavioural Conjoint Therapy for which I am a trial assessor and therapist.
