Biography

I am a doctoral student in the neuroscience program under the mentorship of Dr. Christopher Warren. Before attending USU, I obtained a BS in psychology from Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL. My current research examines social decision making in both the neurotypical and clinical populations (e.g., schizophrenia spectrum disorders, social anxiety). I am also collaborating with Dr. Sara Freeman in the biology department to examine oxytocin receptor binding density in postmortem brain tissue of individuals who had schizophrenia. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, watching independent films, and playing music with my husband.
