About Me


I am a PhD Candidate at Stanford University, advised by Professor Jennifer Eberhardt. Broadly speaking, my research examines how race shapes the psychological experiences of African-Americans and Whites: both basic cognitive processes (attention, perception, and memory), and interactions between citizens and police officers.  

How does race affect interactions between police officers and the communities they serve? What are the psychological consequences of police practices, and how does racial identity shape community members' experiences? How is police-community trust eroded or built during everyday interactions between police and the public? Complex issues require diverse perspectives. I use a range of methods to answer these questions, ranging from field surveys at DMV Offices, to computational social science techniques, to controlled lab and web experiments.
