PhD Candidate, Social/Personality Psychology
I am currently a PhD Candidate at Brock University. My research examines relations between micro-level (e.g., individual differences) and macro-level (e.g., broad social systems) variables in predicting attitudes toward marginalized groups. Specifically, my research focuses on two main areas: 1) how people perceive and respond to changes in their culture in ways that impact prejudice and discrimination, and 2) cross-regional comparisons of prejudice and its predictors.
In my work, I use cross-sectional, experimental, and longitudinal designs. I have expertise in structural equation modeling including complex mediation and moderation, cross-lagged models, latent growth models, multilevel modelling, factor analysis, and content analysis. I am proficient in excel, SPSS, Mplus, and R.
I also enjoy expanding my methodological expertise. Currently I am expanding my experience with python and SQL and developing skills relevant to big data approaches, including web scraping and machine learning.
