Hello – I’m Ellen, and I’m a PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology and Music. It’s less of a mouthful to call it “music psychology”, so let’s do that (although it won’t be what’s on my degree certificate).
As you can see, my thesis is bridging two subject areas that don’t usually speak to each other. It’s a bit of a match-making exercise, really, finding patterns and similarities between ideas in those fields, and showing how they fit well together.
I’m also a technology trainer for students and staff. This involves building, improving, and delivering training on computer software.
This website (and blog) are still very much in development, so please bear with me while I make it (them) beautiful and informative. If there’s any information you’d like to see, please do leave a comment.
P.S. I have only just learned what a PhD candidate is. Apparently, once you have completed all mandatory things apart from your thesis you are a candidate, otherwise you are a student. It seems like this means that most people studying in the UK are candidates once they have passed their first year review. I think the difference means a lot more in the USA, where there are more pre-thesis requirements.
