I’m a doctoral candidate in Social Psychology at the University of Florida, and a researcher and consultant with Project Implicit. At the University of Florida, I'm part of Kate Ratliff's Attitudes and Social Cognition lab, and last summer I visited Social Cognition Center Cologne as an international researcher.
My research focuses on morality and punishment, social hierarchies, and the attitudes supporting identities and behaviors related to social justice. I take the approach that in these domains, social cognition interfaces with people’s motives related to power and justice. As such, those motives compel us to offer influence, resources, and protection to some people and ideas, while directing us to constrain, ignore, and dislike others.
