Hi there! I am a social psychology graduate student interested in using behavioral science for positive social change. In my current graduate training at Cornell University, I study the relationship between high-level social inequalities and individual behavior. Specifically, I am interested in how inequality shapes the decisions we make, and in turn, how decisions can be leveraged to reduce social inequalities.
Prior to starting graduate school, I worked at the Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University to develop and test behavioral interventions to promote the financial well-being of people in low- to moderate-income households. I received a B.A. in Psychology & Neuroscience from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016, where I conducted research on social experiences of positive emotions within the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Lab.
