Adolescent Health Lab

Get Involved

Prospective Graduate Students

Thank you for your interest in joining our graduate program and our research lab.

Typically I accept one graduate student every year or two years depending on the progress of other lab members. Your application to our graduate program will be independently reviewed and ranked by two faculty members. Those favourably reviewed are invited for an interview. If you have designated me as a possible supervisor, we will have an opportunity to meet during this interview and to discuss your research, training and career interests. I am most interested in supervising students who wish to pursue a research related career, either entirely or in combination with clinical practice through an appointment at a university, hospital or other institution.

More information on research in our lab can be found on this website under the Research Tab, including publications. Further information on our graduate program can be found on the SFU Psychology website. Best wishes in your application process!
