BioHi! I am currently pursuing my Master of Science in Nonprofit Management from Columbia University. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Cognitive Studies in 2020 from Vanderbilt University. I was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. I have held multiple research assistant positions-- political science research at Princeton University, education psychology research at Vanderbilt University, visual neuroscience research at Rutgers University, and health behavior research at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute. In my free time, I enjoy singing and filmmaking.
Exploring Identities Through Multimedia
As my final project for a study abroad program I did in Rabat, Morocco, I filmed an experimental documentary of a 20-year-old Moroccan woman to capture her life, dreams, vision, and identity. I am very interested in exploring various identities and the way different aspects of society, such as culture, gender, language, class, race, and religion affect identities through film and other media. If you are interesting in creating and portraying unique stories and people through multimedia (film, podcasts, music, art, etc.), I would be happy to help you!
As a Cognitive Studies, I became extremely proficient at reading and understanding psychology research studies, and even designing and implementing my own research studies. One research study I completed as an undergrad was called "Effects of Student Satisfaction with Exam Grades on Motivation and Study Strategies." If there is a psychology intervention you are curious to test, I could help you build a strong foundation for your study by helping you find existing literature and understanding it, and then designing and implementing your research study!
