Lab Manager

Sophia Kwan

I am a provisional psychologist completing my Masters of Psychology (Clinical), and have previously completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Hons.) at UNSW. I am very interested in the process of developing mental health interventions, including manualised approaches to treating disorders, as well as designing internet or phone app-based treatments. This has stemmed from a keen desire to work in an area which unites empirical and theoretical research with clinical practice.
