Welcome to my website! My name is Homayoon Maghsoodi (I go by Amir). I am a card-carrying Physicist studying to become a Psychologist. In August 2018, I will begin the PhD program in Counseling Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to study psychological development and how to support people in their development during major life transitions (e.g., early childhood, adolescence, transition to college, etc.) and in adverse circumstances. (See my CV for more about my academic background)
In addition to psychology and physics, I am a Python nerd and like to write computer programs that blend my love of art and programming. For example, you can see one of my projects (an audio visualizer based on the physics of granular systems) by watching the video below. Check out my Art page for more of my projects!
