Undergraduate Students

Dr. Storch maintains a vibrant undergraduate laboratory that involves USF and USF St. Pete students in some of his research studies, as well as their own undergraduate senior theses. Students are able to gain valuable research experience in the context of these placements that help pave the way for future graduate school placements. Some of the current projects that students can be involved in include studies on obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette’s Disorder, Prader-Willi Syndrome, and trichotillomania.

Past senior theses that students have completed include the following:

  • Psychometric Properties of the Hoarding Assessment Scale in College Populations
  • College Students’ Attitudes and Beliefs about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • The Relationship between Recalled Childhood Teasing and Symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Anxiety Comorbidity in Pediatric OCD patients
  • Exploring the Relationship between Obsessive Compulsive Symptom Dimensions and Problematic Eating Behavior in Youth with OCD
  • Skin Picking Behaviors: An Examination of the Prevalence and Severity in a Community Sample
