I am a behavioral scientist with a passion for translating social science research into practical solutions. Currently, I serve as Vice President of Research at Coqual, a global think tank that aims to understand and address workplace disparities through cutting-edge research and data-driven advisory services.


I earned my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Virginia and completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University before setting out to help organizations apply social science research to real-world problems. Since then, I have led diverse research programs as a Mixed Methods Researcher at WeWork and as an Associate Researcher at Future Laboratories.
