I am a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at UW-Madison. I graduated from Grinnell College in 2015 with a B.A. in Psychology and a concentration in Neuroscience. While at Grinnell, I worked both as a research assistant in the Cognitive Development Laboratory, conducting eye-tracking research with preschool-aged children, and as an assistant teacher at the college preschool. After graduating, I completed a fellowship in Developmental and Computational Social Neuroscience at the Yale Early Social Cognition Laboratory, where my research focused on infants at risk for developing autism and toddlers affected by developmental disabilities. I am currently interested in incorporating genetics into my research to better understand the underlying mechanisms of externalizing disorders in young children. I enjoy hiking, attending concerts, and eating all of the cheese Wisconsin has to offer.
