Professional Bio

My name is Alicia W. Villanueva van den Hurk, and I am an international student from Spain. I was born and raised in Mallorca, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea, but I have been studying in the United States for almost 6 years. I graduated from Layton High School, Utah, in 2018, and I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Bowling Green State University, Ohio, in 2021. Currently, I am a first year clinical psychology master’s student at the University of Dayton, Ohio, where I conduct research under the supervision of Dr. Julie Walsh-Messinger. Overall, one of my main research interests involve the assessment of psychosis, along with schizophrenia and similar conditions. My other research interests include the effect of social factors (e.g., social stigma) on schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders, as well as on the treatment of such conditions. Additionally, I am interested in examining the influence of demographic elements (e.g., culture, ethnicity, gender, SES, etc.) on these previously mentioned topics. Regarding the Society for Personality Assessment, I joined this organization over the Summer, and I will be attending my first SPA conference in March.
