I became interested in social psychology in high school with my first psychology class. My fascination with people and why they do what they do has only grown since then! I am especially interested in the area of close relationships—how we interact with each other in intimate relationships like those between family members, friends, or romantic partners. In the classes I teach, I help students think critically about our own and others’ behavior. I have taught Introduction to Psychology, Psychology of Gender / Psychology of Women (similar course, different institutions), and Psychological Research II.
In my free time, I love yogging (with a soft ‘j’), cooking, getting caught up on TV shows on Netflix, and all things Halloween-related, especially costume parties.
