I am a Ph.D. candidate in Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My research focuses on examining real-life difficult decisions and finding ways to help people make more effective decisions for themselves. My most recent research examines high-stakes medical decision making. Specifically, I am studying how parents and healthcare providers make tracheostomy placement (a life-sustaining technique) decisions for critically ill children and developing interventions for improving their decision making process.

I have the fortune to work with many great people. I have been mentored by experts in judgment and decision making, including Professors Irwin Levin, J. Frank Yates, and Brian Zikmund-Fisher.
