Miss Yvonne Chau

Research Assistant


I joined the University of Strathclyde as a research assistant after completing my undergraduate studies and obtained a BA hons degree in Psychology and HRM. I am currently enrolled back in the university to complete a postgrad in Research Methods and Statistics (MSc). I have experience working as an RA on projects exploring Asian International students mental health (funded by SMARTEN) and Knife Seizure Imagery (in collaboration with the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit). My main interests lie in research involving qualitative-based research, student experiences, international students and mental health.
