Research Overview

My research interests include: School, Neuropsychological, and Sport Psychology; Eating Disorders, Body Image, and Weight Bias; Student Athletes; Home-School Collaboration; Test Anxiety; Mind-Body Health; Integrated Behavioral Health Care, and Social Justice. I also am interested in bridging the research-practice gap as a school psychologist, which I have sought to do in my practicum and clinical placements through data-based decision making and intertwining research into my practice in new and creative ways. Additionally, under the mentorship of my advisor Dr. Melissa Bray, I am supporting a variety of projects including using video self-modeling as an intervention for individuals who stutter, as well as a horticultural intervention for mind-body health support. This year I was also involved in a collaborative project designing and disseminating a survey assessing college students’ use of mind body health supports amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I am excited for the prospect of intertwining several of my aforementioned interests (eating disorders, sport psychology, mind body health) in my upcoming dissertation.
