I am a rising second year graduate student at the University of Minnesota. I work in Colin DeYoung's lab, where I conduct research on the neurobiological and genetic correlates of personality and individual differences. Before coming to Dr. DeYoung's lab, I worked as a Research Assistant with Dr. Rex Jung at the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, NM. Although I sometimes feel as if I am interested in EVERYTHING, I am currently involved in research projects examining differential developmental sensitivity effects on personality, genetic & structural brain correlates of personality, and genetic & structural brain correlates of schizotypy and apophenia.
