My name is Ken Choi, and I am completing a B.Eng in Chemical Engineering here at Ryerson University. I’ve always had a strong interest in Psychology, and this passion has continued to flourish as a member of Dr. Kristin Vickers’ lab. My research endeavours have included successfully publishing a review article on attenuation of trait variables to modify stress reactivity, collecting data for a teaching study exploring distractions in class, and most recently a research assistant position running participants for a study regarding neurocognition in OCD.
