Research interests:

I am a third-year doctoral student in clinical psychology, pursuing both research and applied work. My research interests include studying the etiology and treatment of mood disorders, including cognitive modeling of mood disorders. I am interested in investigating how cognitive styles (eg. rumination) can serve as both risk and causal factors in depression. My applied experiences have included working as a selective enrollment tester for the Chicago Public School, and as a psychotherapist at a community mental health center. My current practicum placement at the Northwestern University Family Institute is providing me with experience doing neuropsychological assessments.
