I am a graduate student in social psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago working with Dr. Linda J. Skitka. Broadly, my research examines the influence of value-based motivated reasoning on judgment and decision-making, context-dependent and independent explanations for ideological differences and similarities in psychological functioning, and the causes and consequences of holding attitudes with moral conviction.
Originally from southern Illinois, I received my B.A. in psychology/religion from Greenville College in 2008 and my M.S. in psychology from DePaul University in 2013 where I worked with Dr. Christine Reyna. Prior to starting graduate school I worked as a social service caseworker at an acute-crisis psychiatric hospital in southeastern Pennsylvania.
