Welcome!

I am currently a National Science Foundation postdoctoral research fellow in the University of Southern California Department of Psychology. I received my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles

In my research, I study when and why adolescents’ interpersonal relationships contribute to their emotional, psychological, and physical health outcomes. Guided by ecological frameworks of development, I investigate how young people’s social experiences and corresponding adjustment are shaped by their broader school, online, and home environments.
