I am a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University. I am housed in the Department of Psychology, where I conduct social psychological research with Susan Fiske and John Darley. I am also affiliated with the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs where I am a Lecturer in Public Affairs.
I completed my PhD in social psychology at the University of Waterloo. During that time I was able to work with excellent mentors, including Michael Ross, Aaron Kay, John Holmes, Mark Zanna, Richard Eibach, and Ramona Bobocel, as well as many esteemed graduate students.
My research involves the application of psychological theory to better understand real world issues relating to economic and social inequality, ideology, morality, justice and conflict resolution.
I am originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia. After completing my B.Sc. at Dalhousie University, I spent 2 years teaching English and absorbing the culture in Kyoto, Japan. Aside from teaching and conducting research, I can probably be spotted playing ultimate frisbee, enjoying the outdoors, or travelling.
