I am a first year Clinical Psychology Ph.D. student in the Relationship Development Center, working with Dr. Joanne Davila at Stony Brook University.
This past summer I completed my two-year Lab Manager position in Dr. Eva Telzer’s Developmental Social Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I was responsible for overseeing a longitudinal study of adolescents’ social, emotional, and cognitive development.
Broadly, my research focuses on romantic relationships in adolescents and emerging adulthood. More specifically, I am interested in romantic relationship development, sexual behavior, sexual satisfaction, and well-being. Additionally, I am interested in sexual communication and miscommunication both in committed couples and while dating. I study how individuals convey and misperceive sexual interest as well as how we can teach young adults how to have healthy relationships and communicate about sex, sexual interest, and sexual health.
I graduated from Binghamton University in 2019 with a with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.Mus. in Voice Performance.
