Research Interests

I am a second-year graduate student in the Master of Arts in Psychological Science program at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I serve as the Graduate Research Assistant on a multisite project entitled, "Four-wave longitudinal study of COVID-related posttraumatic stress and adjustment disorder symptoms in a representative US sample." Through this experience, I solidified my enthusiasm in data management and working with big data. I hope to obtain a data mining and analysis job when I graduate in Spring 2022. My master's thesis on estrogen's influence in fear discrimination and conditioned inhibition as a model for posttraumatic stress symptoms relates to my interest in mental and physical health, trauma, and behavioral outcomes.
