Sasha Reid is a third year PhD candidate in Applied Psychology and Human Development at the University of Toronto. She's also a member of the Collaborative Doctoral Program in Human Development at the Fraser Mustard Institute. Sasha’s dissertation focuses on the developmental antecedents, biological contributions, and intrapsychic processes/ worldviews of serial killers. Through transdisciplinary scholarship Sasha hopes to present a more complete picture of serial homicide, its etiology and the underlying motivations that exacerbate this unique form of fatal violence. At the intersection of developmental psychopathology, phenomenology, and biogenic criminology, this project is the first to explore how multiple developmental factors unfold and intersect to explain serial homicide.
