My PhD examines associations between parental bonding, attachment style, bullying, and the development of psychotic-like experiences (e.g., low-level paranoid thinking). For example, in one study, we are examining whether bullying mediates the association between parental bonding and psychotic-like experiences. In another study, we are examining whether attachment style moderates the association between anomalous perceptual experiences and paranoid thinking.
