I am currently a first year graduate student at the University of California, San Diego working with Dr. Lindsey Powell in the Social Cognition and Learning (SoCal) Lab. During my undergraduate program at Boston University, I worked with Dr. Melissa Kibbe in the Developing Minds Lab. After undergrad, I worked as the lab manager for the Johns Hopkins University Lab for Child Development directed by Drs. Lisa Feigenson and Justin Halberda.
