Office: PH 217


I am a doctoral student in the Behavioral Decision Research program. My research explores the interplay of emotion, consciousness, and decision-making. I am particularly interested in why and when people choose to engage or disengage from their emotions and how individuals’ interaction with emotion influences their judgments and decisions.


I received my BS in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience from Texas A&M University in 2012.
