Office Hours

Fall 2019, Mondays 11am-12pm
Doctoral Student/Instructor


I'm a fourth year Social/Personality Ph.D. student. My current work focuses on attachment processes in donor-conceived individuals (i.e., people born through assisted reproductive technology, ART). Broadly speaking, I'm interested in how individual differences in attachment relate to (1) language use/production, (2) behavior, and (3) interpersonal functioning in donor-conceived individuals and families.
