About me

I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Tufts University in 2009. Previously, I was a research assistant at the International Adoption Clinic at Tufts-NEMC, where I became involved in a project on the self-perceptions of internationally adopted children as portrayed through their family drawings. My other research interests include the interaction between perception and nonverbal behavior, particularly geared toward those belonging to stigmatized social categories (e.g. racial minorities, substance abusers, the mentally ill, etc.). I am also interested in the area of mind-body connections, or how psychological and social factors (both intrapersonal and interpersonal) interact with biology to shape overall health and well-being.
