I am currently a student at the University of Kentucky pursuing a degree in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy. I hope to attend graduate school in a clinical psychology program with a interest in alcohol abuse, risk-taking, and addictive behaviors. After completing a Ph.D program, I aim to find a position in which I can continue researching addictive behaviors while also taking the necessary steps to open my own private practice. I have direct experience working with animals and human research subjects. While attending the University of Kentucky, I have gained experience in a laboratory setting in comparative cognition and in social psychology by studying religiosity and behaviors of individuals.
