Doctoral Candidate, TCU

My research aims to apply an evolutionary theoretical framework to studying human psychology, behavior, and biology, particularly immune function. More specifically, I am interested in how the social and physical environment impact immune function, and in turn, how the activities of one's immune system influence their behavior. I have additional interests in studying interactions between hormones and behavior, behavioral genetics, as well as the roles that the immune system and microbiome each play in health and disease.



I am currently a doctoral candidate in experimental psychology at Texas Christian University and member of Sarah Hill's Evolutionary Social Psychology Lab. Before that, I grew up in Nebraska and received my bachelor's degree in Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. I have too many dogs.*

*From the perspective of many of those who know me. I am of the firm belief that one cannot have too many dogs.
