A privilege!

Tell us about your field of expertise
I am trained as an experimental social psychologist, and my research broadly focuses on cultural psychology and positive psychology.

What hobbies/interests do you enjoy outside of academia?
I love food – both cooking at home and experimenting with new restaurants. I also love to hike and be outdoors as much as I possibly can. And everything is better when I get to do it with my family and my two kiddos.
