I am a fourth-year graduate student at Princeton University studying Cognitive Psychology in the Socio Cognitive Processes Lab. I received a BA in Psychology and Economics from the University of Rochester in 2016. My research questions target mechanisms behind memory processes at the individual level (prediction error, retrieval induced forgetting), as well as their interplay and influence on social constructs at both the individual and the collective level (collective memory, collective beliefs). I am also interested in the mechanisms that influence the formation and endorsement of beliefs, such as memory accessibility, emotional arousal, and prediction error.
