I am a visiting scholar in Stanford University's Interpersonal Perception and Communication Lab of the Psychology Department.


Before coming to Stanford I received my Ph.D. in psychology from Tufts University, and a B.A. in psychology with a minor in neuroscience from Syracuse University.




My research investigates the interplay between sensorimotor states and social cognition. My research program focuses on applying insights from work on embodied cognition to illuminate processes of social cognition, examining three sequential stages of the social cognitive process: placing someone into a social category, forming impressions of that person, and inferring his or her intentions. I am currently supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
