I am a gradate research scientist interested in social and personality psychology broadly defined. My research interests include interpersonal judgment and decision making, intergroup dynamics, and individual differences in personality. I am dedicated to understanding how and why humans behave and make decisions across situations. I am currently working on a research project associated with understanding impression formation over time. More specifically, I am interested in understanding how personality traits are associated with reading other people's personality. I also have experience in industry work as a consumer insights researcher where I completed work in business, market, and user experience research.
I am interested in using my experience in qualitative and quantitative research methods to obtain opporunities within industry and academia that will allow me to apply my expertise in a novel way.
I also have research interests and experiences in biopsychology where I used psychophysiological measurements (fMRI, EMG, Heart Rate, Epigentics) as a means of understanding social psychology.
