I joined the Bridgewater State University faculty in the Fall of 2014 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. I completed my Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology with a research focus on Social Psychology and Law at the University of Kentucky in 2014, and my B.A. in Psychology from Hamilton College in 2004.

My research investigates the effect of victim stereotypes, crime schemas, and juror attitudes on decision-making. I am particularly interested in perceptions of crimes involving violence against women and victimization of people from marginalized groups.
