29 May PROFILE: Johnny Dubois (MA)
Where are you from and how did you end up in U of T Psychology?
I am from Brandon, Manitoba, where I studied at Brandon University.
I’m not sure how I ended up at U of T myself! During my undergrad I worked at a crisis unit, where I taught and did research. Upon graduating I worked for a year at Pine River Institute, a residential treatment center for youth with addiction. During the summer I also worked for Statistics Canada as a crew leader for the 2016 census.
Whose lab are you in and what are you studying?
I am in Amy Finn’s lab. At present I am studying the development of implicit memory. I also have a side interest in the interaction of mindfulness and memory.
What do you currently want to know more about? Or what is a skill you would like to develop?
I would really like to learn more about imaging measures, and could definitely develop my coding (R, Python) skills.
Last non-non-fiction book you read?
I don’t think I’ve read a fictional book in a long time…
If not this, what would you be doing with your life?
I have no clue. Puppy farmer?
Advice for potential graduate students?
Use your morning hours well. Get involved in stuff.
