I’m have a BA in Forensic Psychology and an MA is Forensic Mental Health Counselling from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. I’ve previously taught at William Paterson University in New Jersey. I’m currently a PhD student under the supervision of Josephine Ross investigating the relationship between the development of morality and self-awareness in infants.

Research Interests

I’m currently working with Josephine Ross investigating the development of self-awareness and morals (as seen through prosocial behaviours) in infants. Specifically, I am trying to find empirical evidence of a relationship between self-awareness and prosocial behaviours.
