I am currently a Master’s student in Experimental Psychology at the College of William and Mary. My research focuses on the antecedents and consequences of subjective well-being. In particular, I am interested in the relationship between decision-making and happiness, broadly defined. Within the wide range of well-being measures, I am also interested in the psychological constructs of meaning in life and positive emotions. Additionally, I am interested in international, cultural, and social ecological differences in well-being. Under the supervision of Professor John Nezlek, I am currently learning multilevel modeling to analyze daily experiences of well-being.
