Biography

I am primarily interested in research on personality and individual differences. During my time at the University of Georgia, I worked in the Personality Studies Lab studying the general and pathological personality correlates of precipitants to sexual misconduct with Dr. Josh Miller and Dr. Courtland Hyatt. I also conducted research on the relations between personality, executive function, and impulsivity in older adults in Dr. L. Stephen Miller's Neuropsychology and Memory Assessment Lab. I am currently studying the DSM-5 Alternative Model of Personality Disorders with Dr. Tom Widiger and conducting assessments for the BPD Compass clinical trial with Dr. Shannon Sauer-Zavala.

In my spare time, I enjoy painting, doing jigsaw puzzles, watching scary movies, and spending time with my cat Meredith! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about graduate school or the research I'm involved in.
