About Professor deDios
Dr. deDios is a new tenure track faculty member in the psychology department at Cypress College. She started at Cypress in fall 2016.
She received her BA in psychology from the University of Southern California in 2007. After working for a year as a behavioral therapist with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, she started graduate school at Clark University in 2008. She received her MA in 2011 and her PhD in developmental psychology in 2015.
Dr. deDios’ research has focused on emerging adulthood and cultural identity development during this period of the lifespan.
She has been teaching psychology since 2008 and has taught at various colleges (Clark University, Rio Hondo College, Los Angeles Valley College, and California State University Long Beach) before finding a home at Cypress College. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing that light bulb turn on for students! Her door is always open for students who want to learn more about psychology, need help with study skills or writing skills, or who want to learn about a career and further education in psychology.
In her free time, she likes scrapbooking, going to Disneyland, eating burgers, and hanging out with her husband and two dogs (Zoey and Maggie).
I would highly recommend taking PSY 139 – Developmental Psychology. It is a great course that introduces you to how people grow and change across the lifespan. We talk about everything from womb to tomb!
