I am a Ph.D. candidate in psychological sciences with an emphasis in health psychology, and I am planning to enter the job market next summer (2021). My research focuses on psychological and physiological aspects of stress and coping, health outcomes related to these processes, and how lifestyle/health-related behaviors, especially physical activity and sleep, impact these relationships across populations. I am also interested in the psychological processes of health behavior change, especially physical activity initiation, maintenance, and habit formation. Currently, I manage the SHARPP Lab and I am involved with an array of research projects at various stages. Specifically, one of the projects that I am working on looks at the impact that loneliness and perceived stress have on coping processes during the COVID-19 pandemic in the general population in the U.S. and Australia. I am also working to complete my dissertation; a meta-analysis based on the cross-stressor adaptation hypothesis examining physical activity participation and physical activity-related moderators that impact physiological stress reactivity and health outcomes. In my spare time, I enjoy lifting weights, outdoor fitness activities (hiking, cycling, rollerblading), and spending time with friends and family.
