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.

Email: mohamud1@ualberta.ca

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.
