Student Spotlight

Introduction: Annisa Ahmed

Annisa acts as a clinical research coordinator in the Section of Behavioral Oncology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) under the direct supervisor of Dr. Alexandra Psihogios. Upon graduating from Temple University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Annisa worked in CHOP’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences across various research specialties before discovering the world of pediatric psychology. Presently, her areas of interest involve the function of mobile health technologies and implementation science within pediatric psych populations. She is also interested in working with historically underrepresented samples of patients to promote inclusivity through her work. She intends to apply for doctoral programs that specialize in pediatric psychology come this fall.

Annisa is recognized as an outstanding student who has made contributions to the field of pediatric psychology through research.
