I passed my comprehensive exams!
In many PhD programs, students take comprehensive exams, which is meant to test whether students demonstrate a certain level of knowledge and proficiency. These usually occur after students have completed their coursework, and what is exactly tested along with how students are tested can differ by their program or area. For instance, my comprehensive exams included 9 days of writing papers, while I know of others who have 3 hours to write a paper along with an oral exam. Students need to pass these usually to remain and continue in their program.
I wrote mine at the end of April 2023, and am happy to have learned that I passed! Comprehensive exams - in my area, at least - are pass/fail.
Next steps in my PhD program therefore include me teaching, along with developing, proposing, and completing my dissertation!
I was awarded SSHRC!
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) awards doctoral fellowships every year, these being scholarships that doctoral students can hold for up to 4 years. I'm honoured to receive one as decisions are primarily made based on the perceived quality of one's research proposal; that is, the judges liked my submitted research proposal and decided to fund me to conduct this research during the rest of my PhD. More about the SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships in general can be found on this website.
New paper published!
During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in North America, there was a rise of anti-Asian racism. Along with Drs. Winny Shen, Ivona Hideg, Christianne Varty, and Anja Krstic, I studied the experiences of East and Southeast Asian Canadian and American employees during this time, specifically how facing COVID-19 related anti-Asian racism impacted their wellbeing and work-related attitudes and behaviours. Our paper on this is now published and available with open-access on the Applied Psychology: An International Review website.
