I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Toronto in PEARL within the department of political science. I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Merced where I served as department lab manager and taught a variety of political science courses at UCM and Wellesley College. Before UCM, I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While at UNL, I was a research assistant in the Political Attitudes and Cognition Lab and Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab. I have also worked in consumer insights and ux research in nonprofit and tech spaces.
