I am a Graduate Research Assistant in the Human Development and Family Science department working under Dr. Liz Wieling. My research interests are geared toward individuals, couples and families affected by obsessive-compulsive disorder. Specifically, I aim to clinically seek how Exposure and Response Prevention (ExRP) for treating OCD can be used from a systemic lens. Broadly, I aim to evaluate relationship behaviors (coupled, family, interpersonal) and how they influence relationship outcomes in a clinical setting. I am further interested in LGBTQ+ psychopathology and working with diverse populations.
