Morgan Buerke

Institution: University of Southern Mississippi, United States.

Supervisory team: Daniel Capron, PhD.

Position: PhD student.

Current research: I am interested in studying how cognitive biases relate to suicide risk, how risk factors for suicide may be related and therefore more directly targetable, and examining the heterogeneity of suicidal behaviour.

Research interests:

  • Risk factors for suicidal ideation and behaviour
  • Decision-making in suicidal behaviour
