I joined the faculty in 2022 after receiving my B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in Cognitive Sciences at Georgia State University. My courses include General Psychology and Cognitive Psychology.
My primary line of research investigates the cognitive underpinnings (i.e., working memory, attention, perception) of biased decision-making related to race and facial recognition/categorization as it relates to the psychology of law-based decisions (e.g., jury decision-making, eye-witness testimony).
More recently, my secondary line of research has expanded to also include many of these same principles as it relates to gender, the intersection between gender and race, and gender-based violence. My teaching philosophy centers around developing critical thinking skills and real-world application of course content.
