Hi there! I am a third-year graduate student in social psychology at Cornell University interested in using behavioral science for positive social change. In my current graduate training, I conduct research on the topics of inequality, judgment and decision-making, and interventions. Specifically, I am interested in how people think about economic and racial inequalities and how we can use behavioral science-based interventions to reduce disparities. I work primarily with Dr. Tom Gilovich and Dr. Neil Lewis, Jr.

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 in the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Lab.
