I am a doctoral student in Social Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, where I work with
 Dr. Martie Haselton and Dr. Theodore Robles.

My research unites social, evolutionary, and biological perspectives to investigate human mating and romantic relationships. My current work examines how the formation of intense social bonds can influence women's immune-related gene expression.

In addition, I am interested in the associations between (subjective) social status, stress, and health. My
dissertation will explore potential hormonal and cellular mediators of the negative association between social
status and health.

I graduated from UCLA in 2011 where I majored in Psychology, and conducted a senior thesis with Dr. Martie Haselton.
