Alyssa Maples is a 3rd-year Ph.D student in Philosophy at the University of California in Santa Cruz. At the moment, her research involves an interdisciplinary look into the history and the scientific research of suicide notes. This research mostly deals with the way we have conceptualized suicide over time, how this has impacted the content of suicide notes, and further why we should thus be cautious when attempting any scientific study of a suicide note.
