Principal Investigator - Sabrina Thai

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. Before moving to St. Catharines, I spent two years as a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University in Montreal, Qu├ębec. I completed my HBSc in Psychology Research, and MA and Ph.D in Social Psychology at the University of Toronto.

Although I'm technologically savvy, I enjoy putting pen to paper and can often be found scribbling away in a notebook or on scrap paper. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time in the kitchen trying new recipes and making baked goods, especially bread. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee, especially a flat white on a crisp fall day, and listening to podcasts. My guilty pleasure is watching bad reality TV and competitive cooking shows, but I also enjoy watching good dramas, fun sitcoms, and my home team, the Toronto Blue Jays, play ball.
