I'm a Ph.D. student in Clinical Psychology, working in John Allen's Psychophysiology Lab. My research interests are closely related to my clinical interests of working with medical populations and examining the role of emotions and close relationships in health and illness. In my research, I am interested in examining how biological, relational, and emotional factors influence physical and psychological health. I believe that learning about complex human experience involves combining multiple levels of analysis, and my research to date spans bio-psychosocial spectrum.
