About Me

I am excited you stopped by to learn more about me! I am a Research Fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin working in the Pennebaker Language Lab. I also run my own undergraduate research lab – CLIMB.

People often ask me how someone with an accounting degree ended up studying words. It is not that different. Instead of tracking money to learn more about how people think and act I study language patterns. I am especially curious about the language people use to tell stories about their life.

In my spare time, I enjoy a bunch of things. I enjoy art. I enjoy board games. Not surprisingly, Scrabble is a favorite of mine. I enjoy hiking with my dog, Jade. I love traveling to new places and meeting new people.

Please feel free to get in touch if you want to talk words!
