Research Interests – I am interested broadly in researching depression, suicide risk, and clinical advancements in treating suicidal adults. I am particularly interested in the overlap of scientific research and clinical application, especially in high-risk populations (i.e. individuals with chronic or acute suicidal ideation). Specifically, I am pursuing research into the experience of ambivalence between wanting to live and wanting to die and how this may provide a point of intervention for individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts.
