Riley is currently a second year PhD student in Temple University’s clinical psychology program. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2017 with a BS in Neuroscience and went on to a post baccalaureate position in the psychiatry department. His current work focuses on tailoring quick self-report assessments of psychosis risk for use in the general population. He is also interested in studying how neuroinflammation and basic cognitive processes change prior to a first episode of psychosis.
Riley is thankful for the kind support he received from graduate student and post-doctoral mentors when applying for graduate school and hopes to provide this same assistance to other applicants who may not have these support systems available.
