Primary office:


I am a senior majoring in Human Biology, Psychology, and Philosophy. After graduating from KU, I intend to pursue graduate school for a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology. My research interests broadly include evolutionary psychology, the effects of hormones regulation on cognition and behavior, and language relativity. I am the lab manager for Dr. Omri Gillath’s Social Interactions Lab. In my free time, I enjoy playing videogames, catching up on my reading, and gardening.
