I received my PhD in Psychology at the University of Bielefeld in Germany. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the Rotman Research Institute in Toronto (ON), I joined the Department of Psychiatry in 2007. Current studies in my lab investigate emotion-cognition interactions in neurological/psychiatric and healthy populations. In my spare time, I love being with my family and friends, good food, and traveling. I also sometimes do statistics for no reason.

Project: Predicting alexithymia with eyetracking data

Email: amacraek@ualberta.ca

I'm Alex, and I'm a second year undergraduate student in Neuroscience. I'm really interested in research involving mental health, particularly clinical interventions, personalized medicine paradigms, and social psychological influences on mental health. As well, I'm really fascinated by research that pushes the boundaries of current conceptual frameworks of medical science and challenges our existing perceptions of disorders or therapies. Outside of the lab, I like to work in the community and volunteer in things I'm passionate about, like mental health, student voice, and the environment.

Project: Alexithymia in eating disorders: Exploring the link between emotion processing difficulties and harmful eating behaviours

Email: vkube@ualberta.ca

Hi! My name is Veronica and I’m a BSc Psychology student here at the U of A. I’ve been lucky to get the chance to hop around in different research areas over the course of my degree, but I am incredibly excited about this current project in the Fujiwara Lab! I love helping and working with people; this project perfectly ties this together with my interests in mental health, emotions, and interpersonal psychology. The big dream is to pursue a Masters/PhD in Clinical Psychology and work as a Registered Psychologist. Outside of lab life, cooking, volunteering, and spending time with friends and family are my jam.

Hey, my name is Mursal and I’m a second year student in the Faculty of Science. I am interested in Cognitive and Behavioural Psychology as well as research involving mental health. Therefore I joined Fujiwara’s lab to expand my knowledge on these subjects, and to contribute to their research. My current project targets ambiguous face processing in alexithymia. Outside the lab I enjoy tutoring, volunteering within my community, learning about business and economics, playing sports, and hanging out with family and friends.
