A bit about me:

I am currently a PhD candidate in Social Psychology with a minor in Public Health at the University of Arizona. Broadly, I study how culture shapes the ways that individuals cope with suffering in the context of a number of social issues using socioecological methods. I primarily work with Dr. Daniel Sullivan as part of the Cultural-Existential Psychology Lab, but I also work with the Alliance for Vaccine Literacy and the Environmental Health Collective at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public health. I am also currently an NSF Graduate Research Fellow.


I received my BA in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from California State University, Fresno where I worked with Dr. Robert V. Levine. My training and research experience have positioned me to work collaboratively across academic disciplines to understand and address the psychological implications of social issues from financial debt to environmental justice.
