I am a fourth year PhD student in clinical psychology studying under the mentorship of Dr. James Li. My research focuses on several areas:

  1. The structure of psychopathology, with a focus on externalizing behaviors (e.g., antisocial behaviors, substance use) as defined in the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP)
  2. How externalizing behaviors develop across the lifespan, with an emphasis on childhood and adolescence
  3. Interplay between genes and environment on developmental trajectories of externalizing
  4. Implications of incorporating genetic information, specifically polygenic scores, within clinical settings and the legal system

In addition to my research, I am also interested in psychological and forensic assessments.
