Major professor: Kali Trzesniewski/Lenna Ontai
I graduated from UCD in December 2017 with a degree in Human Development and a minor in English. During my time as an undergraduate, I worked with Dr. Lenna Ontai’s research team exploring who and what influence children to make certain decisions in regard to health behaviors and motivation. At the completion of my degree, I was able to continue this research and collaborate with Dr. Kali Trzesniewski’s SELF lab to explore the intersection of health behaviors, mindset development, and family influences. I am excited to continue this work and am especially interested in closely examining family and parent factors. In my free time, I like to read, watch (good) movies, and go on walks in the Davis Arboretum, preferably all while drinking coffee.
