Graduate Assistant (2010-2011)
Catherine Lee, B.A. is the Graduate Fellow for the Center for the Human Rights of Children at Loyola University of Chicago. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Cornell University in 2008. Subsequently, she worked as a research assistant in the Department of Psychiatry at the Cleveland Clinic, involved primarily with research focusing on children and adolescents suffering from psychosis. Catherine is currently a second-year doctoral candidate in the Clinical Psychology program here at Loyola.
Catherine has traveled to Beijing, China, to study Mandarin Chinese and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her time abroad piqued her interest in children's access to healthcare, both domestically and internationally. Catherine’s commitment to the issues of human rights stems from her desire to improve the quality of life of children and adolescents through research, clinical practice and implementation of social policy. She believes that a human rights perspective is crucial to better understanding psychology’s real-world implications and social applications.
