Developmental (PhD 4)
Dr. S. Fitneva
My name is Kathie Bailey. I am completing the last year of my PhD in developmental psychology under the supervision of Dr. Stanka Fitneva. Before coming to Queen’s University, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (Sociology minor/Emphasis in Education) and my MA degree in developmental psychology at Trent University. My MA research investigated social problem solving and language in middle childhood and early adolescence.
I am particularly interested in social cognition and language in children with atypical development. As such, my comprehensive exam paper topic was my dissertation research investigates language in children with epilepsy and examines its association with parent-child interactions, executive function, and social cognition.
While pursuing my degree at Queen’s, I have worked as a research assistant and as a teaching assistant (TA). Courses that I have held a TAship include; Principles of Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Statistics in Psychology, and Research Methods in Psychology.
I keep busy with my research and teaching responsibilities, but I also enjoy volunteering in my community. For the past few years I have volunteered with Special Olympics as the volunteer coordinator for my local affiliate. I also promote a healthy and active lifestyle for Special Olympics Athletes and as a head/assistant coach for several sports and nutrition programs.
I am very excited to be involved in the QChaT program this year and look forward to chatting with you!
