In 2017, I graduated with a BA in psychology and philosophy from Michigan State University. Following that, I taught first grade for a few years with Teach for America. I've come to this lab to strengthen my skills in quantitative research processes and to learn more about the field of developmental psychology. I'm not only interested in children's ability to navigate a socially rich world, but also how to best foster emotional resiliency, empathy, and social problem-solving from an early age. Ultimately, I plan to pursue a degree in either developmental or social psychology.
