I am currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Medical Social Sciences in the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. I received my PhD in Social-Personality Psychology at the University of California, Davis in 2020 and my BS in Psychology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2013.
My research focuses on personality development, self-regulation, sociocultural contexts, and mental and physical health. To conduct this work, I use large-scale, multi-method longitudinal studies with diverse samples and data spanning multiple developmental periods. I have expertise in various quantitative methods and statistical techniques including longitudinal modeling (SEM and MLM), factor analysis, Monte Carlo simulation studies, and coordinated data analysis.
When I am not conducting research, you can typically find me at a yoga studio, dabbling in photography, cooking, or traveling.
