MA, Psychology, University of Minnesota, 2016

BA, Psychology, University of Minnesota, 2012


I have worked at the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry as an undergraduate volunteer, full-time staff, and now as a graduate student. I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research Program through the Department of Psychology.


Research Summary/Interests

My primary research interests involve using neuroimaging to examine the neurobiological underpinnings of suicidal thoughts and behaviors and non-suicidal self-injury among adolescents and young adults.
