Research Interests: 

My research interests lie at the intersection of existential, clinical, and positive psychology. I am broadly interested in how people cope with and potentially grow from adverse life experiences. I am particularly interested in how death-related thought and experiences promote meaning making and personal growth. My research is currently focused on the development and testing of existential psychotherapeutic interventions. 

Prior to graduate school, I worked in public policy at the Australian Department of the Treasury and Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
