Clinical (PhD 1)
Dr. D. Tripp
Hey! I’m Tina, a first year PhD student in Clinical Psychology working with Dr. Dean Tripp in the Pain Lab. For my Master’s thesis, I looked at biopsychosocial predictors of suicide risk in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease. My PhD research, however, is TBD.
I have a specialist in Psychology and a minor in Physiology from the University of Toronto. During my undergrad, I was involved in several research projects, primarily related to memory and perception (scene memory in adults with mild cognitive impairment) and behavioural genetics (spatial memory in zebrafish). Evidently, I’ve dabbled in several areas of psychology, so how did I end up studying health psychology? Well, health psychology looks at the impact of psychological processes on physical health and illness - to me, that sounds like a perfect combination of psychology and physiology!
Outside of the lab and clinical work, I spend even more time involved in psychology-related activities; I’m part of the social committee for the Association for Graduate Students in Psychology (AGSIP), and have TA-ed/am TA-ing PSYC221, PSCY236, and PSYC302.
