I am a Ph.D. candidate in psychology at U.C. Davis interested in understanding the effects of stress on cognition as well as the biological pathways through which those effects occur. I am working with both Andrew P. Yonelinas in the Human Memory Lab and Brian C. Trainor in the Behavioral Neuroendocrinology Lab. I also work as an online project coordinator for George M. Slavich at the UCLA Laboratory for Stress Assessment and Research. I received my B.A. from Simpson University in 2012, studying under Wayne D. Norman, (now at LCC International University) and my M.A. from U.C. Davis in 2015.
