I am a bay area native, I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. I went to undergrad at the University of California Davis, where I received a BA in Psychology and a BA in English. My previous research has been at the Menlo Park VA, where I was a volunteer research assistant for two different research projects. My primary research interest is understanding the relationship between Emotion Regulation, Executive Function, and their functional connectivity in populations with psychopathology. My career goal is to be a clinical neuropsychologist who is practicing clinical work and contributing to the current research in psychology treatments. I love to travel, learn about different cultures, and eat new foods.
