M.A. / Ph.D. Students
I currently have space for 2 - 3 additional graduate students. Students become fully engaged in one or more of our research programs (e.g., emotion perception, identity perception, in- versus out-group perception) and may enroll in any of the three focus areas: Lifespan Development, Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience, or Social/Personality.
Students are funded through a combination of Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships and my NSERC and SSHRC grants; they are encouraged to apply for additional graduate fellowships. Students in my lab meet with me on a regular basis to discuss relevant journal articles and ongoing projects. They also participate in weekly lab meetings. My students present their work at international/national conferences and publish their work in top-tier journals. Graduate students frequently collaborate with each other, with postdoctoral fellows in my lab, and mentor undergraduate students. I also encourage students to collaborate with other faculty members both at Brock and at other institutions (see Research Interest Groups -- we are members of the LIfespan Centre & the Cognitive Brain Research Group).
Interested students are welcome to contact my current students, Xiaomei Zhou (PhD), and Claire Matthews (MA), as well as my recent PhD student, Lindsey Short (now an Assistant Professor, firstname.lastname@example.org). [As you can see above, we have regular social events to foster a supportive and fun work environment!]
