I am a PhD candidate in clinical psychology, with a secondary focus in quantitative psychology, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. I primarily work with Bethany Teachman, PhD, in the Program for Anxiety, Cognition, and Treatment lab, and with collaborators in computer science and engineering on the MindTrails Project, a public research website for interpretation bias training.

My research seeks to elucidate the cognitive, affective, and behavioral processes that maintain emotional disorders and the pathways by which psychological treatments can change those processes. By identifying mechanisms of disorder and change, I hope to advance the development and dissemination of targeted, scalable, and personalized interventions. I also have interests in methodology and open science.
