I am currently attending the social psychology doctoral program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, to pursue my interest in risk and protective factors of the sexualization of young girls as well as programs to encourage girls in STEM fields. In the past I have worked on several projects related to PTSD, spinal cord injury, brain injury, and the military at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University.
