Cindy's Page



Cindy is a Master's student in the Human Development program at McGill University. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with Honours at Université de Montréal. Her Honours thesis is currently being adapted towards submission as a scientific publication. Her research experience includes an internship as a research assistant at the Centre for Studies on Human Stress (Institut Universitaire en Santé Mentale de Montréal), directed by Dr. Sonia Lupien and financed by a Summer Training course Scholarship from the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQ-S). She received a CGS Master’s Fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC, $17,500/year) for the 2014-2015 school year.

Her research interests include the study of external factors that trigger the motivation of socioeconomically disadvantaged students (SEDS) about their academic endeavours and future professional achievements. Her interests focus on SEDS’ engagement towards school, motivation for academic achievement and external determinants of educational trajectories. She wishes to acquire knowledge about adolescent development and social issues in education using the theoretical frame of self-determination theory to evaluate schools’ factors (e.g., sports programs, ICT) that tend to support autonomy and competence, fostering intrinsic motivation.
