My research interests include the investigation of psychological topics such as positive psychology, social aspects of group interactions, use of psychophysiological measurements as a means to understanding social psychology and the role of epigenetics in social behavior, as well as topics included in biopsychology. I have a passion for understanding human behavior from multiple facets including social psychology, genetics, and neuroscience. I am currently working on a research project associated with understanding impression formation over time. More specifically, I am interested in understanding how personality traits are associated with reading other people's personality.
