I am a doctoral candidate in Social and Personality Psychology at Yale University working with Professor Margaret Clark. My research interests broadly focus on the functions of verbal and nonverbal emotional expressions for building and maintaining healthy close relationships.

I will complete my PhD in May of 2021, at which point I will be seeking an opportunity to pursue my passion for supporting the work of academic institutions through a position in higher education academic administration.  My primary career objective is to improve the creation and dissemination of knowledge at an academic institution, whether through enhancing curriculum for students, advising and recruiting the next generation of scholars, enhancing undergraduate and graduate education, supporting research, or communicating the work of the institution to the broader public.
