Cert. Psych. Gabriel Ellis, PhD
Academic Research


Research in Psychology and Early Buddhism

Over the past two decades I have acquired expertise in two areas of academic research: Psychology and Early Buddhism.

In psychology I work on cognitive models of the mind, the unconscious, the practice of psychotherapy, and effects of society and relationships on the individual.

In Early Buddhism I make fundamental research in the fields of meditation, Buddhist psychology, Buddhist concepts, and comparative religious studies.
