Research


I'm a clinical psychology scientist-practitioner in-training.  My research aims to fuse the fields of clinical neuropsychology, mental health and degenerative disease epidemiology, and environmental quality and natural resource conservation.  

I'm a current graduate student in Duke University's Department of Psychology & Neuroscience and a  former study coordinator for Columbia University's Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain. Before Duke I worked at the intersection of environmental stewardship and public health as an environmental policy researcher at the Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy, an environmental policy intern at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and a science communicator and advocate at the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

Publications

I currently work with international prospective birth cohorts based in New Zealand and the United Kingdom under the mentorship of Dr. Terrie Moffitt and Dr. Avshalom Caspi at Duke University.  I publish new research on child psychology, adult brain health, aging, and environmental quality in journals like  Atmospheric Environment, the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, and the Journal of the American Medical Association, among others.
