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.
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.
