As an undergraduate Nicholas has worked for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Family Intervention Sciences with Dr. Guy Diamond’s research team. The center’s research is targeted at helping suicidal adolescents by utilizing Attachment Based Family Therapy. 

This mental health research experience has evolved into Nicholas’ current research goals with his Hillman Scholar academic advisors Dr. Rosemary Polomano and Dr. Therese Richmond. He hopes to work with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and research the impact the disease has on the spouses and children of veterans.
