Research Interests and Education

I am a second year graduate student in the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Department at the University of Kansas.I am seeking a PhD in Psychology. 
I work with Dr RuthAnn Atchley, from the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Program, and Dr. Omri Gillath from the Social Psychology Program.

My research interests include individuals differences in attention and emotion, hemispheric differences of emotions. Other interests include the cognitive and neural aspects of adult attachment style.

I am the Graduate Assistant for the KU McNair Scholars program. The goal of the KU McNair Scholars program is to help diversify future generations of academic and research faculty by preparing low-income, first generation, and underrepresented college students for the PhD.
