Olivia is a first-year graduate student in the Social/Personality Psychology PhD program at UCR. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from Arcadia University in 2019 and worked as a research assistant for the Phelps Lab at Harvard University from 2019-2022. As an emotional person herself, Olivia is interested in investigating how humans cope with situations that evoke emotional responses. She would also like to explore the self and social regulation of both positive and negative emotions. Ultimately, Olivia hopes to bring to light ways to take charge of one's emotions so that humans can lead healthy, happy, fulfilling lives. Outside of work, Olivia enjoys eating sweets, spending time with interesting people, going on adventures, listening to music, getting lost in a good book or TV show, taking photos, and having a good laugh.
