Joey Cheung


Joey is a second-year Clinical Psychology graduate student in the MADLab. She graduated from Tufts University in 2016 with a B.S. in Psychology and International Relations. Prior to joining the lab, Joey worked as a full-time clinical research coordinator at the Depression and Clinical Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, working on a range of mechanistic and treatment studies targeting depression and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Joey’s research interests encompass the spectrum of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors, as well as other behaviors associated with emotion dysregulation (e.g., aggression). Specifically, Joey’s research seeks to understand how environmental factors (e.g., interpersonal contexts) and individual differences (e.g., cognitive and affective vulnerabilities) may interact to increase risk for self-injury using a range of clinical, behavioral, and physiological measures.
