My research focuses on the psychology of religious belief and morality. My previous research has looked mainly at perceptions of morality and attitudes towards atheists. I’ve also studied how gender might intersect with these perceptions and attitudes.
Beyond my research in social psychology, I am also a graduate fellow at the Center for Equality and Social Justice (CESJ) and a volunteer ESL instructor and tutor for pre-literacy level refugees and immigrants at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning.
When I’m not working or teaching, I enjoy reading, writing, and traveling.
