Biography

Jala is a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology at the University of Glasgow. She joined the Mental Health and Wellbeing group in 2021. Jala has a BA (Honours) in Psychology and an MA and PhD in Clinical Developmental Psychology from York University, Toronto, ON. While completing her MA and PhD degrees, Jala conducted research on cognitive development, rational thinking, and individual differences in contaminated mindware. During her time at York, she also developed and co-lead a project on the negative sequelae of lifetime trauma exposure. 

Jala completed most of her clinical training at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, where she worked with children, youth and families in both assessment and intervention settings. She also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. There she conducted both clinical work and research, with a particular focus on families’ mental health and wellbeing during COVID-19.

Research interests

Jala’s research focuses on child and youth mental health. She is particularly interested in examining the impact of adverse and stressful life events, including global issues such as climate change, on developmental psychopathology. Jala hopes to delineate the diverse developmental pathways to serious mental health difficulties and disparities in young people.
