  • Ovsanna Balian, Graduate Student

    Graduate Student
    University of Delaware
    Newark, DE 19716


    ​I graduated with a double degree in psychology and education from UC Irvine in 2015, and graduated with my master's in clinical psychology from California State University, Northridge in 2019. My research interests focus on romantic relationship processes and sexuality, especially within minorities. Specifically, I am interested in how the romantic and sexual quality of people change when faced with health problems, such as cancer and diabetes. I hope that through my research and clinical experiences, more individuals in these populations can receive the treatment they need to better improve their romantic and sexual quality.
