Science has always fascinated me, and I am very fortunate to have found a field that allows me to research and test my questions and observations.

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with a minor in biological anthropology, with Summa Cum Laude and Honors in the Major Distinctions.

During my time at FSU, I conducted research in Dr. Jon Maner's Evolutionary Psychology Laboratory as an Honors in the Major student, serving as Lab Project Coordinator.

I also had the opportunity to travel to Oakland University to work with Dr. Virgil Zeigler-Hill as a Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) research assistant in 2019. For a reflection on my time there, click here.

Currently, I am a graduate student in Social Psychology Doctoral program at Florida State University. My studies are funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP).
