About Me

I am a social psychologist and methodologist in training at The Pennsylvania State University. In my work I examine motivations for environmentally sustainable behavior. In combining my expertise in social processes and research methodology with my passion for environmental conservation, I seek to inform, develop, and evaluate interventions for encouraging sustainable behavior at the individual and group level.

I hold a Masters of Science degree in General Psychology from the University of North Florida and a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from the University of South Florida. I have over eight years of experience in research psychology and six years of experience specifically studying psychological approaches to environmental problems (i.e., environmental psychology).

My work has been published in journals such as Global Environmental Change, Nature Climate Change, and Journal of Environmental Psychology and covered in media outlets such as The Washington Post, VICE news, PSMag, Bustle, and on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
