When I’m not in the lab, I can usually be found searching for the perfect burrito in Pittsburgh, performing improv around town, or playing Catan with friends.

Research Interests: Broadly, my research focuses on understanding the destructive attributions, perceptions, and behaviors that underlie intergroup social and political conflicts, and ways in which these conflicts may be mitigated in socially constructive ways. Additionally, I am interested in the intersection between political social environments, the shaping of social identities, and subsequent social belonging in educational contexts. Finally, I am interested in metascience and quantitative methods, and in the use of applied research to improve societal problems.
