I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Psychological Sciences program with an emphasis in health psychology. I graduated with a B.S. in psychology in December 2019 from the University of La Verne, where I worked for three years as a research assistant/lab manager in a multicultural psychology lab. Currently, I am interested in researching the psychosocial factors involved in chronic illness management, stress and health, and health disparities. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games, cooking, and studying Hungarian.
