Research Intern

February 2020 - November 2020 New York City, NY
“I liked how organized and detail-oriented the department was which led to easy training sessions as well as helped interns get use to the work environment. ”

Field Intern at Global Psychiatric Epidemiology Group

May 2019 - August 2019 New York City, NY
“The experience of conducting structured diagnostic interviews was so unique. I administered the PTSD Life Events Checklist, CIDI diagnostic scales, and KBIT-2 which is an amazing opportunity for an undergraduate. Many of the staff members were very helpful and took a personal interest in us as people rather than just interns; they listened to our educational and career plans as well as our feedback on the internship itself. ”
