I am a PhD Student in Psychology & Law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (New York City) and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. I’m interested in how innocent people remember their alibis, how pre-existing beliefs influence how people interpret police use of force in body cam footage, and how cognitive processes influence legal decision-makers plea decisions.
I previously worked at the National Institutes of Health as a Post-baccalaureate Fellow. Before that, I graduated from Williams College in 2014 with a B.A. in Psychology and German.
When not researching and teaching, I like to listen to podcasts, take photographs and watercolor, and go hiking.
