I graduated from NU last summer in 2012 majoring in psychology and biology and have stayed to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology. Broadly speaking, my focus is on human sexuality. Besides psychology, I am interested in genetics, biotechnology, gender studies, cryptozoology, the paranormal, music (especially rock), playing guitar, and Japanese culture.
