I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Peace and Conflict Neuroscience Lab at the University of Pennsylvania and a Postdoctoral Innovation Lab Fellow at Beyond Conflict. My research bridges the areas of social psychology, cognitive psychology, and political psychology to study links between behavior and social-cognitive processes that evolve in intergroup contexts. My main research interests include (1) investigating cognitive functions that contribute to and predict prejudiced attitudes, (2) examining how prejudiced attitudes give way to discriminatory behavior, and (3) designing and implementing prejudice and discrimination reduction interventions. I received my Ph.D. and M.A. in Social Psychology at Temple University in 2018 and my B.A. in Psychology and Sociology at Florida State University in 2013.
