Maria joined the lab all the way from Saint Petersburg Russia. On route, she studied Mandarin in Beijing, management in Edinburgh, and launched careers in London. She came to Calgary to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a Psychologist, and for pancake breakfasts with a mountain view.
Maria is fascinated by the relationship between mind and body, psychopathology and physical health, and by therapeutic approaches that tackle that relationship. Running, yoga, and reading take up her time when she’s not busy examining children's pain memories and how to change them.
