Sophia Choukas-Bradley

Welcome! 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). I also serve as the Clinical Psychology Lead for the new Center for Digital Thriving at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I will be promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure at Pitt in September 2024. 

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.

I am NOT accepting applications from prospective graduate students during the upcoming 2024-2025 admissions cycle. As of May 2024, we also do not currently have any openings for paid or unpaid positions for undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate student, or post-doctoral trainees. We will keep the Join the Lab page updated when this changes. The Join the Lab page also has more info & application resources for prospective graduate students.
