Office: McGuinn 428
Primary Advisor: James Russell

Academic Interests: Broadly, my research interests are developmental and clinical forensic psychology. More specifically, I am interested in how emotion development is related to juvenile offending. My current research focuses on how children with disruptive behaviors perceive facial expressions of emotion, particularly expressions of disgust and anger.

Undergraduate Institution/Degree: B.A. in Psychology, Boston College, 2013.
