I am a PhD candidate in Psychology at Massey University in Wellington, studying social support in emergency responders under the New Zealand Scholarships (formerly New Zealand ASEAN Scholarship) program. I did my MA in Psychology at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, with Clinical Psychology as my area of concentration, and my BA (Psychology) at the University of the Philippines Visayas, Iloilo, Philippines.

I am an Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) Young Scientist and an alumnus of the Hyogo Institute for Traumatic Stress in Kobe, Japan for a course on Mental Health Services after Disasters in Asia, and of the Psychological Intervention after Disasters Workshop by the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) in Mianyang, China. I am a student member of the International Association of Applied Psychology (IAAP), Stress and Anxiety Research (STAR) Society, and the Asian Association of Social Psychology (AASP). In the Philippines, I am affiliated with the University of the Philippines Visayas, Iloilo as a faculty member (currently on study leave).

I do a bit of photography in my spare time.
