About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of California, Los Angeles. I'm in the Department of Psychology — Quantitative Area, advised by Dr. Amanda K. Montoya. My undergraduate work was at Seattle Pacific University, where I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics in 2019. In 2020, I received a M.A in Psychology from UCLA. I am particularly interested in statistical power analysis and how it is determined in moderation, mediation, and moderated mediation models. In addition, my research focuses on research in teaching and promoting open science practices.
