Primary office:


I am a currently a senior working to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Biology and a minor in Psychology. After graduation this May, I plan to attend graduate school and begin working towards my long term goal of studying and working with individuals diagnosed with chronic illnesses. With respect to research, my interests revolve around hormonal and other physiological responses to daily stresses and interactions. I joined Dr. Gilath's lab this Fall 2016 and am excited to learn more about the day to day work involved in psychological research! Outside of my academic interests I also enjoy reading, Saturday movie marathons and spending time with my friends and family!
