Alyssa Ciamp is a scientist, writer and will, eventually, be a ghost. She received her B.S. in psychology in 2016 then her M.S. in experimental psychology in 2017. Her master's thesis explored risk factors for depression in men and implications of possible, alternate symptoms of depression not explored in the current diagnostic criteria. On top of being Stoked as Hell about psychological research, Alyssa is a poet and an artist. In an effort to work on writing every day and combat perfectionism, Alyssa began a daily poem series on Twitter. Selected pieces will be continually posted in blog-format on this site. In addition to poetry, Alyssa also collages using vintage Life magazines, old textbooks and various other found ephemera. These collage journals are found on this site as well.
