Doctoral (PhD) Student in School and Applied Child Psychology
Maisha M. Syeda is pursuing her doctoral degree in School and Applied Child Psychology at University of Calgary (U of C), in Alberta, Canada. She also received her Master's degree in the same discipline from U of C. She obtained her Honors Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto, with a specialization in Psychology and major in Human Biology.
Maisha's research interests, primarily lie within the field of childhood anxiety. For her Master's Thesis, she investigated the relation between parenting stress and children's attribution style in childhood anxiety, and whether that relationship was influenced by variables such as the child's age, sex, ethnic orientation or their own perception of their parents' stress. Her thesis was funded by a number of provincial and University of Calgary scholarships, including a prestigious graduate scholarship, sponsored by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
