Research Topic:
My research combines several aspects that may affect graduate students with depression, such as emotional stressors, mentor relationship stressors, and peer stressors to further analyze what factors in research experience affect one’s depression in graduate research experiences. As any excess stress is harmful to a student’s health, it is important to know what factors cause them and do proper research on how we can help future graduate students with depression.
