Before coming to Penn State, I attended the University of Virginia and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Drama. I am now working under the guidance of Dr. Timothy Brick in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Penn State. Broadly, my research interests are in the application of quantitative methods in the study of well-being, particularly in older adults. I am interested in evaluating factors that influence well-being across different time scales and in learning advanced quantitative methods that will enhance my ability to answer my research questions.
