Prior to KU, Dr. Ghosh completed a clinical fellowship at Marquette University Counseling Center (2014-2015) and a research fellowship at the Madison VA Hospital and University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Women's Health Research (2015-2018).
She teaches graduate courses in vocational psychology, career development, and diagnosis. Dr. Ghosh's Career Development in Context Lab focuses on how context (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender) shapes the career decisions of underrepresented groups, including women, racial/ethnic minorities, and military Veterans. She is particularly interested in how Veterans make post-military transitions into higher education in addition to their academic and career development. She is currently pursuing licensure in Kansas.
