Research

My research passion lies in understanding the dynamics of motivation and decision-making. Currently, my research focus is on reducing teen pregnancy through relationship education. This involves equipping adolescents with essential tools to cultivate and sustain healthy relationships. Beyond this area, I am interested in the broader landscape of human behavior and self-control, through examining their influence on goal pursuit.
