I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The New School for Social Research and Artis International. I completed my Ph.D. in social psychology at The Pennsylvania State University in 2018, and earned a B.A. from Bates College in 2012.

I have 7+ years experience conducting research with an eye toward applying social science to foster real-world impact. I study how people with different religious, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and political identities cooperate or come into conflict with each other, as well as how targeted interventions can promote intergroup tolerance and protect members of marginalized groups from prejudice and discrimination. My mixed-method expertise—with extensive experience conducting survey, experimental, longitudinal, field, and cross-cultural research—in combination with a background in political advocacy, prepares me to transform diverse sources of knowledge into testable and scalable solutions for pressing social issues.
