About Me

My pic

I am a sixth year graduate student in the social area of the University of Virginia’s psychology department.

My research focuses on the conflicts people encounter in the course of goal pursuit—which goal to pursue, which means to employ—and how people make trade-offs when faced with temptations, roadblocks, and alternative paths. When every option seems like a good one, how do people make efficient choices between the head or the heart, urgency or importance, and getting ahead or getting along? I work primarily with Ben Converse and the SoBaD Lab as well as Tim Wilson.

Before UVa, I attended Reed College and then worked as a lab manager for Josh Aronson at NYU. I grew up in Texas.
