About me

I am a second year PhD student at Stanford's Graduate School of Business in the Organizational Behavior (Micro) program, where I also work with Nalini Ambady in the Department of Psychology.  I am interested in how people's beliefs about race and diversity impact their behaviors in intergroup interactions.  Related work considers how these beliefs impact perceptions of individuals and groups.  More broadly, I investigate how people think about and respond to inequality, hierarchy, and privilege.  I previously earned my BA in both Psychology and Human Biology at Stanford, completing an Honors thesis with Hazel Markus.  Before graduate school, I also worked as a lab manager for the Mind, Culture, Society lab with Jennifer Eberhardt and Hazel Markus.

I am currently supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and a Graduate School of Business Fellowship.
