Keri K. Wong

Betty Behrens Research Fellow in Psychology at the University of Cambridge.

I am a junior research fellow (JRF) in Psychology, an affiliated lecturer and examiner at the Department of Psychology and Education at the University of Cambridge. More recently, I have been an ad-hoc admissions interviewer for Newnham College (2017).

My research interests include the: early assessments of childhood paranoia/suspiciousness, antisocial and aggressive behaviours, schizophrenia-spectrum disorders (schizotypal personalty disorder), and cross-cultural comparative research.

My research has been published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Psychological Assessments, and The Scientific World Journal. I currently hold the Betty Behrens Research Fellowship at Clare Hall Cambridge, an independent researcher development grant to examine the long-term effects of social mistrust on children’s wellbeing and mental health.

Please contact me if you are interested in collaborating!
