Ph.D. Candidate

University of Delaware

Hi! I’m a Social Psychology Ph.D. candidate at the University of Delaware. I study how people connect with each other and regulate a sense of belonging. My recent work focused on how people respond to social rejection using behavioral and physiological measures. I advocate practices improving replicability, reproducibility, and openness. I’m currently working at Close Relationship and Health Lab with my mentor, Lisa Jaremka.
