I am a NYU Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow working in the Social Neuroscience Lab directed by Prof. David Amodio. I obtained my PhD from the Departments of Psychology and Neuroscience at Princeton University, where I worked with Prof. Alin Coman, in the Socio Cognitive Processes Lab. I also received an MA in Cognitive Psychology from Princeton University (2018) and a BA in Psychology and Economics from the University of Rochester (2016).

My research investigates the cognitive and social processes that shape individuals’ and collectives’ memories, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors, with direct applications for policy. Guided by a theoretical framework of investigation, I employ a large array of canonical and innovative methods from behavioral experiments to brain imaging, and social network analysis, to uncover avenues in which science can be applied for social welfare (i.e., to encourage living sustainably or engaging in preventative health behaviors).
