About Me

I am a first year graduate student currently working towards my doctoral degree in Affect, Social and Cognitive Psychology at the University of Denver with a focus on developmental, cognitive neuroscience. I am a member of Dr. Kateri McRae's Automaticity, Affect, Control and Thought Laboratory and am investigating the relationship between emotion and various cognitive processes as well as the mechanisms underlying emotion regulation.  

Research Interests:

  • Unconscious emotional processing and its effect on decision-making
  • Emotional regulation and activation
  • The neural correlates of emotion and consciousness
  • The role of emotion in mediating competing action plans
  • Direct and indirect cognitive control
