Welcome! I am a Doctoral Candidate in Social Psychology at UCLA, where I work in the Social and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory. My research investigates how social-environmental factors such as social stress and socioeconomic status influence our brains and bodies in ways that may affect health and well-being. I utilize methods from social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and psychoneuroimmunology to study these interesting topics.

My research was mentioned by David Brooks in the NY Times! http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/13/opinion/13brooks.html
