Ph.D. Psychological and Brain Sciences - U.C. Santa Barbara
B.A. Psychology, Peace & Conflict Studies - U.C. Berkeley
I am originally from the Bay Area and have a BA in Psychology and Peace & Conflict Studies from UC Berkeley. Prior to starting grad school at UCSB, I worked as a research assistant at UCSF studying health psychology.
My research interests include positive emotions, close relationships, coping, and health. I am especially interested in understanding the pathways through which positive emotions impact health.
