I am a 3rd year PhD student interested in studying personality development and mental health, particularly in the educational context. After receiving my B.A. in Psychology and Government from Cornell University in 2012, I taught high school in Los Angeles. While teaching, I obtained my M.A. in Urban Education from Loyola Marymount University in 2016. Outside of research, I like to play board games, write fiction, bake, and go on adventures.
