After the PhD: Interview
with Ross O'Hara
From social psychology to designing automated text messaging systems? That’s where Dr. Ross O’Hara has found an engaging career. Through our new video series, “After the PhD: Interviews with PhDs,” we’re learning about PhD careers beyond the professoriate from PhDs who have made the transition. Apart from being fascinating, this interview series lets us learn more about the PhD career transition, and the ways PhDs are finding interesting and engaging work outside the Ivory Tower – which still puts their skills and expertise to work.
For Ross, that means using his skills to motivate low-income students during the many stages of postsecondary education, through text messaging! Watch his interview to learn more about how Ross transitioned from a PhD in Social Psychology into a career in behavioural research.
