About Me

As a doctoral student in Quantitative Psychology, my educational and professional backgrounds have encompassed multiple disciplines; studying human behavior, applying advanced statistical methods, and conducting policy research for a national laboratory have afforded me a holistic and multi-faceted view of the scientific research process. As my experience develops, I hope to build towards a career in meaningful, applicable research that sheds light on the behavioral aspects of public policy.

My current research foci are judgment and decision making, risk perception, and the development of novel analytic techniques. I am currently working on projects dealing with path analysis, flexible probability distributions, and public perceptions of legal standards; projects and writing samples will be uploaded here as they become available. My CV and available work samples can be found on the left navigation pane.
