About me

I’m a third-year Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley in the Department of Psychology. I am a social/cultural psychologist in the UCDREAMS lab, supervised by Dr. Arianne Eason.

As a graduate student, I have cultivated two lines of research that shed light on the causes and consequences of omission, misrepresentation, and discrimination. In the first, I study bias towards, and experiences of, LGBTQ+ people. In the second, I collaborate with the RISE center (UMich) to understand the experiences of Native Peoples.

I began my research career as an undergraduate researcher at the University of British Columbia, where I conducted honors thesis projects with Dr. Frances Chen, and Dr. Toni Schmader. After graduating from UBC , I was Dr. Nicole Stephens‘s lab manager at Northwestern University.
