Emma Ilyaz, BSc (she/her)

Emma is an MSc2 student in clinical psychology. Before joining the lab, she completed her Honours Bachelor of Science with Distinction at Queen's University in 2021 and worked for a year as a lab coordinator. In the EMBody Lab, Emma is researching the impact of parental emotion displays--especially the concordance of parents' emotion responses across domains (subjective, physiological, observed)--on adolescents' emotional knowledge and mental health. She also likes to learn about mental health epidemiology and policy.

When not working, she enjoys reading fiction and non-fiction books, scrolling on TikTok, watching documentaries and tending to her diverse interests, from learning about airplanes to finding the perfect lasagna recipe.
