I am a senior undergraduate majoring in Psychology. My research interests focus on the etiology and treatment of childhood psychopathology. I am currently working on a paper looking at perspective-taking and psychopathy, funded by an FMUR FellowshipI am also conducting a year-long honors thesis on a home-based intervention for children with high levels of CU traits. I ultimately hope to attend graduate school for clinical psychology.
