I am an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Ontario, Canada. I direct a lab where we focus on studying identity, intergroup relations, and social justice.
Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience (2019-2021) and at the Ford Center for Global Citizenship at the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University (2017-2019). I also held a post-doctoral fellowship with the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FQRSC). I completed my PhD in experimental psychology at McGill University.
Some of the topics we focus on in the lab include:
Collective Autonomy and Other Group Needs: We study how basic psychological needs are impacted by people’s sociocultural identities and their intergroup contexts (see our theoretical approach HERE).
Intergroup Laboratory Simulations: We take an intergroup approach to studying intergroup relations by examining how groups actually interact within dynamic, interactive, and open-ended simulation experiments within the laboratory (see our methodological approach HERE).
