Research Interests: 

I am a 6th year clinical psychology doctoral student, currently completing my clinical internship (2020-2021) in Behavioral Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine. As a member of the Grief, Loss and Social Stress laboratory, I completed my doctoral studies under the guidance of Dr. Mary-Frances O'Connor. My research and clinical interests include behavioral medicine, psycho-oncology and palliative care. My dissertation focused on the development of a measure of "double awareness" in patients with advanced cancer, which assesses the ability to engage meaningfully in life while also preparing for one’s death.
