Stella Chan




I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in a fire station because my father was a fireman. Upon completing my first degree in Psychology, I came to Britain for my postgraduate studies. Between 2003 and 2008 I was at the University of Oxford, where I obtained a MSc in Research Methods in Psychology, followed by a DPhil in Experimental Psychology (under the supervision of Prof Catherine Harmer). In 2007-8, I was College Lecturer in Psychology at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, where I was actively involved in undergraduate teaching and providing pastoral care for students. After that, I held two brief postdoctoral research positions, first at the Institute of Psychiatry and then the University of Cambridge. Between 2009 and 2012, I undertook doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at the University of East Anglia while working clinically in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. In October 2012, I moved to the University of Edinburgh to start my new appointment as a Chancellor's Fellow at the School of Health in Social Science. Outside work, I am a keen member of the National Trust and am particularly fond of walking, singing, dancing, cooking, and water sports.
