About me

I’m a third-year graduate student at UC Berkeley in the Department of Psychology. My research interests span across the areas of social, cultural, and developmental psychology.

As a graduate student, I have cultivated two lines of research that shed light on the causes and consequences of omission, misrepresentation, and discrimination in the context of both the LGBTQ+ community and Native Peoples. I conduct research in the UC-DREAMS lab under the supervision of Dr. Arianne Eason, and frequently collaborate with the researchers at the RISE center.

I began my research career as an undergraduate researcher at the University of British Columbia, where I conducted honors thesis projects in Dr. Frances Chen‘s lab, and Dr. Toni Schmader‘s lab. After graduating from UBC with an Honours degree, I was Dr. Nicole Stephens‘s lab manager at Northwestern University.
