INNA SABOSHCHUK
RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
DOCTORAL CANDIDATE, BASIC AND APPLIED SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY

Doctoral Candidate, Graduate Center at CUNY
B.A., Honors in Psychology, Hunter College

Inna is currently a doctoral student in the Basic and Applied Social Psychology subprogram at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. While Inna was an undergraduate at Hunter College, she used qualitative methods to propose an integrated framework of Tajfel's Social Identity Theory and the Loneliness and Sexual Risk Model for the factors that lead to the development of sexual compulsivity. She is currently a graduate research associate at the Hunter AIDS Research Team (HART). Her research interests surround the interaction between social identity and sexual health. More specifically, she would like to employ mixed methodology in order to explore how societal factors influence our sexual identities and how these identities relate to the decisions we make about our sexual behavior.
