"Thanks to Psi Chi's travel support, my trip from Cambridge UK to San Francisco was made possible. I presented findings from my PhD, a new measure designed to assess childhood suspiciousness/paranoia (the social mistrust scale) and other work on the relationships between schizotypal personality and psychopathy. As a regional and campus representative for Europe and the University of Cambridge respectively, I also spoke on the panel ‘Surviving Graduate School.' As a second year APS attendee, I continued to be impressed by the range of wonderful events/talks by many distinguished guest speakers (Scott Lilienfeld, Adrian Raine, Paul Ekman, Mahzarin Banaji, and meet-and-greet with Philip Zimbardo to name a few). I have also received helpful feedback from other researchers and made some valuable contacts for my job search. If you missed APS this year, I would strongly encourage you to attend the next one in New York!”
