Prior to pursuing a Ph.D. in Behavioral Decision Research at SDS in Fall 2017, I worked in data analytics and market research, most recently using biometrics to study psychophysiological responses to marketing stimuli.


I hold a B.A. in Psychology and Economics from Barnard College, an M.P.A. in Policy Research and Analysis from the University of Pittsburgh, and an M.A. in International Relations from the Barcelona Institute of International Studies.


I am interested in the psychological benefit derived from ostensibly disadvantageous or costly behavior, such as self-handicapping, information avoidance, and sharing information when it may be damaging to do so.
