I am presently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Beginning in January 2022, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Psychology department at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Ontario, Canada.

If you are considering applying for graduate school to study social psychology I will be considering students to begin in Fall 2022. I am excited to read your application!

Previously, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Ford Center for Global Citizenship at the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University and 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.

Collective Autonomy and Other Group Needs: I study how basic psychological needs are impacted by people’s sociocultural identities and their intergroup contexts (see my theoretical approach HERE).

Intergroup Laboratory Simulations: I 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 my methodological approach HERE).
