I am a graduate student in behavioral decision research, working primarily on topics at the intersection of consumer behavior and public policy.  My current research focuses on how information provision influences consumer decision-making, such as how food labels and nutrition claims influence meal choices.  I'm also interested in how people can be better motivated to pursue information and to create habits that will benefit them, such as seeking medical information to diagnose, treat, or prevent a possible medical condition.


I received my B.A. in Psychology and Leadership Studies from the University of Richmond in 2010.
