I am a post-baccalaureate student preparing for a graduate program in Clinical Psychology. Previously, I received a B.A. in Psychology from Rutgers University, New Brunswick. During my time working in the ABUSA Lab as an undergraduate, I completed a senior honors thesis investigating the roles of depression and childhood emotional abuse, as well as physiological indices of emotion regulation, on cognitive empathy. This work reflects my interest in studying emotion regulation in those with mood disorders, previous trauma, and substance use disorders. My current position in the ABUSA Lab has allowed me to continue examining this unique population, while also gaining a wide variety of skills relevant to both clinical work and research.
