Related Experience:

Before coming to UF, she spent almost 2 years as a Research Assistant at Dartmouth College working on an NIH-funded project using ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to measure momentary self-regulation and identify potential underlying mechanisms of self-regulation to target problematic health behaviors as well as motivate behavior change (smoking cessation and reduced binge eating). Her interest in research began on an NIH-funded study at Rhode Island Hospital Department of Psychiatry and Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University on sexual and gender-based violence prevention among middle school and high school students, school-based intervention programming, and rigorous program evaluation.
