I'm Dr. Sophia Choukas-Bradley (Sophie, she/her pronouns). I'm a licensed clinical psychologist, Director of the Teen and Young Adult Lab, and Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh (Developmental, Clinical, & Social Psychology programs).
The TAYA Lab studies interpersonal and sociocultural influences on adolescent mental health, with an emphasis on gender, sexuality, social media use, body image, LGBTQ+ youth, and intersectionality.
I started the lab at Pitt in 2017. We moved to the University of Delaware in 2020 and returned to Pitt in the summer of 2022.
We are hiring a post-doc to join us in Fall 2023! Apply here.
I'm NOT accepting applications from prospective graduate students the 2023-2024 admissions cycle. The Join the Lab page has more info & application resources.
