I graduated from the State University of New York at Geneseo with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and International Relations in 2015. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Social and Personality Psychology under the guidance of Dr. Rebecca Schlegel. My research interests span a variety of social and personality psychology literatures, including stereotypes, intergroup relations, individual differences, the self, and social support. I am particularly interested in investigating how social and situational mechanisms affect individuals who belong to stigmatized groups across a variety of factors, including academic achievement, success, adjustment, and overall well-being.
