SSCP Student Representatives

Ana Rabasco, M.A.

My name is Ana Rabasco, and I am a fourth year student in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Fordham University working with Dr. Peggy Andover. Broadly, my research focuses on risk and protective factors and treatment for suicidality and self-harm among high-risk groups. I am also interested in the use of longitudinal methodologies, such as intensive daily monitoring, to better understand fluctuations in suicidal thoughts and self-harm behaviors. My clinical interests include the use of CBT and DBT for adults with personality disorders and chronic suicidality. You can reach me at arabasco1@fordham.edu.  


Alexandra Klein, M.A.

My name is Alexandra (Ali) Klein, and I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in Psychology in 2015. Following graduation, I worked as a full-time Research Assistant at the VA Boston Healthcare System in the National Center for PTSD on a study examining trajectories of PTSD in Veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan under the supervision of Dr. Brian Marx. In 2017, I began graduate school at Case Western Reserve University in the PTSD Research and Treatment Program under the mentorship of Dr. Norah Feeny. Broadly, my research interests involve improving access to and efficacy of evidence-based interventions for PTSD. I am specifically interested in identifying novel bottom-up approaches to facilitate clinical decision making and dissemination and implementation of these interventions. You can reach me at abk67@case.edu.
