I am currently working in collaboration with my advisor, Dr. Sherecce Fields, and Dr. Rachel Smallman. In general, my research is focused on the application of constructs that are traditionally studied in Social Psychology in Clinical Psychology populations or treatment mechanisms. I am currently investigating the nuances of self-efficacy, counterfactual thinking, and motivation with a corollary interest in self-construal and culture in general. Clinically, I am interested in transdiagnostic psychosocial factors relevant to mental health.
