About Me

I am a PhD candidate at Temple University. My research interests are in American politics with a focus on gender, political psychology, and experimental methodology. I’m also interested in the intersection between politics, psychophysiology, and human behavior. I am currently working on my dissertation which explores the political consequences of gender-based marginalization. In particular, I consider the way that women experience interpersonal objectification, objectification in the media, sexism, and sexual harassment as potential predictors of political engagement. I’m also the Assistant Director of the Behavioral Foundations Lab and the Graduate Student Managing Editor of the Journal of Experimental Political Science.
