About Me

As a PhD candidate at Brock University studying social psychology, I love using data to provide insights and answer questions about human behavior. I have investigated a variety of topics including:

  • trends in attitudes and behavior over time

  • strategies to increase pro-environmental behavior

  • partisan news media exposure and polarization

  • video game exposure, including use of virtual reality

  • advertisement content and its effect on attitudes

  • relations between regional disease prevalence and prejudice

  • regional differences in food preferences

  • effects of government policy on individual attitudes

 

For my research I have led and collaborated with teams of researchers from all over the world. I have employed survey, experimental, and longitudinal research methods. I have expertise in study design and implementation, data analytics and interpretation, and communication of research findings to diverse audiences. I also have excellent handling of data analytic tools including R, Python, and SQL, as well as visualization tools including Tableau and Power BI.

I have won numerous awards for my research, including a FOSS Writing Award for Best MA thesis, a Canadian Psychological Association Certificate of Academic Excellence, and I was the recipient of the Jack M. Miller Excellence in Research Award for both my Master's and Doctoral work. I also received a Data Visualization Award for a project using Tableau and have received funding for my work from both provincial and federal agencies.

I have taught hundreds of university students across dozens of courses, led teams of research assistants,  supervised undergraduate researchers, and developed workshops to teach survey design and recruitment techniques. As such, I have ample experience with facilitating discussion, breaking down complex topics, and providing constructive feedback on others' work. Currently, I am also serving as an editor at a academic journal in which I collaborate with co-editors in evaluating research and determining whether it should be published.

I enjoy working in teams with diverse skill sets, learning new analytic techniques, generating new ideas, and using data to solve problems. In my free time, I enjoy cycling, hiking, playing board games, and watching documentaries.
