    Intelligence and personality predictors of long term outcomes.

    I am a predoctoral ExpERT* in the Quantitative Methods program at Vanderbilt University. My advisors are Prof. Joseph Rodgers and Prof. David Lubinski. With their guidance, I conduct research on individual differences using longitudinal methodology.

    I completed my B.A. in Economics and Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis. While an undergraduate, I was a researcher and the lab coordinator in Prof. Michael Strube's Social Behavior Lab. In the SBL, I conducted research on reliability and validity, and multilevel analysis of longitudinal data.

    In addition, I was a researcher in Prof. Joshua Jackson's Personality Measurement and Development Lab. In the P-Mad lab, I revived the Kelly/Connolly longitudinal study on marriage and personality. We're examining the predictive power of personality on health and personality's impact on relationship duration. Even though I'm 300 miles away, I still collaborate with Prof. Jackson. We have many exciting plans for our work with the KCLS.
