Introducing Myself

Hello! My name is Josh Steinberg and I am a rising senior (Class of 2022) from Needham, MA. I am in the College of Arts and Sciences studying psychology with minors in neuroscience and legal studies/history. This summer, with the support of CASI, I will be assisting Dr. Robert DeRubeis (Dept. of Psychology) and Akash Wasil with various projects relating to mental health and wellness of Indian students. Notably, I will be focused on implementing and assessing the efficacy of brief, online mental health interventions for this population. Dr. DeRubeis and Akash (a graduate student in his lab) are very well-versed in research on global mental health, and on depression in particular. By working with the DeRubeis Lab I hope to improve my data analysis skills and learn more about how findings from intervention-focused research can be translated into clinical practice. As an aspiring clinical psychologist interested in the treatment of mental illness, I can think of no better opportunity given my interests and goals. I look forward to updating you as I continue my work this summer.
