I graduated in 2017 from the University of Maine where I worked in the Maine Mood Disorders Lab with Dr. Emily Haigh. While there, I conducted research on depression, cognitive reactivity, and the psychophysiology of mood. My senior thesis evaluated the psychometrics of a revised measure of cognitive reactivity, the LEIDS-RR, and was presented at a local conference.
I am currently a post-baccalaureate researcher working with Dr. Gregory Strauss at the University of Georgia. My research duties include participant recruitment, data collection for EMA and affective neuroscience studies, processing ERP and eye tracking data, statistical analysis, and assisting with manuscripts.
I am planning to apply to clinical and affective psychology graduate programs for Fall 2019.
I am interested in emotion regulation, acceptance, psychopathology, transdiagnostic mechanisms, and the application of ecological designs to answer research questions. I also dabble in programming with R.
In my free time I dance, cook, read, play video games, and take pictures of nature.
