I am a clinical student working with Richard Bootzin, PhD in the Sleep Research Lab. I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2008 where I obtained my B.S. in Psychology. Following graduation, I worked as a project coordinator for Patricia Haynes, PhD in her Research Examining Sleep and Trauma (R.E.S.T.) Lab developing and investigating efficacy of interventions for patients with comorbid depression, PTSD and sleep disturbances. My current research interests include behavioral and pharmacological treatments for insomnia, as well as the relationship between sleep and psychopathology (specifically in the areas of traumatic stress and emotion regulation).
