Clinical (MSc 2)
Dr. C. Bowie
My name is Stephanie, and I am a second year MSc student in the Clinical Psychology program. I am currently working on my Master’s thesis under the supervision Dr. Chris Bowie in the Cognition in Psychological Disorders (CPD) lab, which I have been a part of since I was a third year undergraduate student. For my Master’s thesis, I am looking at cannabis use in first-episode psychosis and schizophrenia.
I graduated from Queen’s in 2017 with a BA in Psychology, with my undergraduate thesis (again under the supervision of Dr. Bowie) focusing on modifying negative attentional biases in depression (in other words, trying to help people with depression learn to refocus their attention on positive information). In the CPD Lab, other research I have been a part of includes research on learning in depression, cognitive remediation in severe mental illness, social cognition in psychosis, and using EEG to explore brain functioning in schizophrenia.
During my time as an undergraduate, I also had the opportunity to volunteer and complete special directed lab courses (PSYC 570/575) in both the Social Cognition Lab with Dr. Valerie Kuhlmeier and the Sexual Health Research Lab with Dr. Caroline Pukall. There, I helped with research ranging from understanding social learning and prosocial behaviour in infants and children (Social Cognition Lab) to exploring female sexual arousal and postpartum sexual functioning (Sexual Health Research Lab). I also held a position with SWEP (Summer Work Experience Program) in the CPD Lab over the summer. Currently, I am a TA for PSYC 100 (my third time TAing the course!).
Although my time as an undergraduate was a few years ago, I would be happy to answer questions about undergraduate courses, special directed lab and reading courses, getting involved in labs, the 501 Honours thesis process, and more! I can also help with questions about graduate school or the Clinical Psychology program. I look forward to chatting with you!
