I am a clinical psychology PhD student in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience currently working under the mentorship of Dr. Moria Smoski. Broadly, I am interested in translational approaches to studying emotion regulation and reward processing in depression and comorbid internalizing disorders. I am also interested in modern assessment approaches such as applications of hierarchical models of psychopathology and multi-modal research. Additional interests include contemplative science and pedagogy, as well as psychedelic science. I am also the co-student leader of the P&N Anti-Racism Community. 

I graduated from Brown University in 2018 with degrees in Psychology and Contemplative Studies. Prior to matriculating at Duke, I spent two years as a research assistant and diagnostic interviewer at the Rhode Island Methods to Improve Diagnostic Assessment and Services (MIDAS) project at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

I will be leading several projects this upcoming year, including neural and clinical investigations of a mindfulness-based intervention, a summer course on contemplative studies, and a year-long contemplative group and research team. Please email me if you're interested in getting involved!
