I am a PhD student in Dr. Valerie Reyna's Laboratory for Rational Decision Making with a focus in Law, Psychology and Human Development. My research focuses on different cutting edge areas in psycholegal contexts such as sexual assault, plea bargaining, and juror decision-making. I am the current team leader for the Psychology and Law Team for Reyna Lab.
