My interests oustside of work and research involve being physically active and enjoying the outdoors. I regularly attend Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classses, go to the gym and run outdoors. I avidly attend music festivals as well enjoy going camping during the summer. I am a proud dog ower and enjoy going on regular walks, even in the winter! I have a personal acemdemic interest in history, nutrition and behavioral psychology.
