About Me

I received my undergraduate degree, cum laude, in psychology from Tufts University and a PhD in clinical psychology with a speciality in forensics from Drexel University. My professional interests primarily include forensic psychology, in particular forensic assessment. I have provided psychological services in a variety of clinical settings including correctional facilities, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, at Veterans Medical Center, and an outpatient anxiety disorder clinic.

Research Interests

My research centers on psychology and the law. In particular, I am interested in jury decision-making, forensic assessments, and experiences of correctional personnel (primarily mental health professionals). I currently have many ongoing research projects in various stages of development. I also am working on a number of writing projects that center on this topic as well.
