Currently a PhD student at University of California, Merced advised by Dr. Jennifer L. Howell, my research interests are focused on understanding how people respond cognitively, affectively, and behaviorally to threatening information about themselves and their health; how people overcome uncertainty; and how these events contribute to self-concept change over time. In the long run, my goal is to understand how people can efficiently use information about themselves and about their health to become active agents in the pursuit of a healthy life.
