About Me

Hello! I am a post-doctoral fellow in the Concepts & Cognition Laboratory (PI: Jamie Reilly) at Temple University. I received my PhD in 2021 from the Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University (PIs: Brenda Rapp and Michael McCloskey). Prior to graduate school, I worked as a lab manager/research assistant in Anthony Wagner's lab at Stanford University and in Elizabeth Brannon's lab at Duke University. I received my B.S. in Brain & Cognitive Sciences from the University of Rochester, where I completed an honors thesis in the lab of Jessica Cantlon. When I'm not in the lab, you can find me teaching currently and formerly incarcerated individuals in college-level psychology and math through the Petey Greene Program, Goucher Prison Education Partnership, and the Prison-to-Professionals program.
