I am a PhD candidate in clinical psychology with a secondary in computational science and engineering at Harvard University. I work with Matt Nock and am funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program. My research examines why people engage in behaviors that are harmful to themselves, including eating disorder behaviors, nonsuicidal self-injury, and suicide. I use a wide range of methods to study these problems, including laboratory-based behavioral experiments, real-time monitoring, and large-scale longitudinal studies. I am particularly interested in using mathematical and computational modeling to formalize theories in psychopathology.
I value diversity, inclusion, and belonging, and am committed to promoting these values in research, academia, clinical practice, and beyond. I believe that increasing representation of people from marginalized and historically disadvantaged backgrounds is critical for conducting ethical, comprehensive, and innovative clinical science research.
