I am currently working on receiving my Ph.D. in Health Psychology at UNC Charlotte with 2017 as my year of expected completion. I also received my M.A. in Psychology at UNC Charlotte in 2015, and my B.A. in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach, in 2013.
My research focuses on the ways in which individuals manage and alter their emotions to cope with stressful health-related situations. I seek to understand the contextual nature of emotion regulation and the ways in which positive emotional coping processes can promote better physiological and behavior health.
