I am an Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. My research examines two fundamental aspects of the good life—well-being and morality—in real-world contexts. To study people “in the wild,” I use a diverse methodological toolkit, including experience sampling, naturalistic audio recordings, informant reports, and personality change interventions. Prior to joining WashU, I was a MindCORE Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, and I received my Ph.D. from UC Davis and my BA (Honours) from the University of Melbourne. For more details, please see my CV.
In my personal life, I strive to promote well-being by living vegan and have pledged to give to the most effective animal welfare and global poverty causes. For fun, I am an avid Brazilian Zouk dancer, a long-time classical singer, rock-climber, and dog-mom to my Pomeranian, Kumara. Thanks for visiting my website!
