I am currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at The University of Western Ontario, working under Dr. Sampo Paunonen (personality/measurement) and Dr. Jim Neufeld (clinical psychology). Funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) post-doctoral fellowship, my research seeks to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying social psychological phenomena (racial bias, moral reasoning, attitudes) by using formal cognitive modeling approaches. I am also very interested in methodological topics such as metric calibration, replication, and the use of questionable research practices. See Research page for more details.

Brief bio: I grew up in Sturgeon Falls, a small town in a wilderness-rich area of Northern Ontario, Canada. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada where I was fortunate to engage in research undertakings with Steve Spencer for my Honours thesis. I received my graduate degrees from The University of Western Ontario where I worked under Bertram Gawronski on an eclectic mix of research projects in the area of social psychology (e.g., implicit measures of attitudes, romantic relationships) and on methodological and measurement topics (e.g., metric calibration, impact of unreliability on replication).
