Assistant Professor of Psychology at Bryn Mawr College, USA

About the author:

I’m a social psychologist interested in identifying tools that allow people to regulate their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to align with their goals. I’m particularly interested in tools that are “hidden in plain sight,” within the words people use to refer to themselves, the relationships that they maintain, and the way they interact with their environments.

What I want to achieve:

I’m motivated by the belief that psychological science can be leveraged to improve well-being and address real-world problems outside of the lab.
