I am a Ph.D. student in the Clinical Psychology program.

Research Interests:

  • Intensive longitudinal design and analyses (e.g., multilevel modeling)
  • Sleep and circadian disturbances as transdiagnostic mechanisms in mental health disorders
  • Temporal relationships between insomnia and depression in special populations (e.g., shift workers, athletes, emerging adults)
  • Adherence to, mechanisms of change in, and predictors of response in behavioral sleep medicine interventions
  • Measurement differences in sleep (e.g., self-report, actigraphy)
