I am a doctoral student working under the mentorship of Dr. Nilam Ram. Broadly, my research interests are in advanced quantitative methods, and how those methods can be used to identify and understand the complexities of dyadic relationships and how these relationships contribute to health and well-being.I received my Bachelor’s of Science from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. As an undergraduate, I spent three years working in Dr. Mitch Prinstein’s “Peer Relations” lab and completed a senior honors thesis under the mentorship of Dr. Patrick Curran. Currently, I am a trainee in the NRSA Institutional Predoctoral Training Program (T32) Biomedical Big Data to Knowledge (B2D2K) Training Program. I look forward to integrating analytic techniques across fields to better understand and quantify the dynamics of interpersonal relationships and their subsequent associations and effects on health.
