I received my B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in Music from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. Currently, I am working with Dr. Howard Berenbaum in the BEAST lab (Berenbaum Emotion and Psychopathology Team). I hope to continue my studies through a doctoral program in 2023!
- Trauma in vulnerable populations
- Prevention and Intervention methods
Currently, I'm working on a project examining people who either view themselves in a very positive light or generally describe themselves as being broken/damaged individuals. Specifically, I am looking at what life circumstances and experiences might contribute to an individual’s sense of self.
I am also studying moral injury in military veterans. I'm looking at things people might have done or failed to do that resulted in harm to others. In a current project, facets of guilt and regret experienced as a result of these actions/inactions are being examined as they relate to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
