Yufei (Mandy) Wu is a second-year Master’s student in the Division of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry, under the supervision of Dr. Rachel Kronick. Her research will be integrated within the Welcome Haven project and will examine how asylum-seeking mothers experience their agency and wellbeing during their resettlement process, and how attending a community-based psychosocial support program shapes their self-efficacy, resettlement stress, and wellbeing. She has previously received her BA in Honours Psychology at McGill. As an immigrant herself, she looks forward to working with and learning from refugee claimants, community partners, and other researchers to empower the migrant community in Canada and beyond. She is deeply grateful for the opportunity to join PhiLab, learn from other researchers, and advocate for her research.
