Ph.D. Candidate

University of Southern California.


I’m a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Southern California, working primarily with Dr. Wendy Wood. I study how people form desirable habits, and how they can break undesirable ones. My work uses field studies, Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA), nudges, geospatial analysis, and surveys to paint a broad picture of how behavior change takes place in real-world settings. Before entering academia, I played harpsichord and jazz piano. You can read more about my work below or email me!

Over the years, I’ve had the fortune of knowing awesome people who helped me understand where I want to go and how to get there. I’m happy to pay it forward - feel free to reach out to me if you want to learn more about what it’s like to do behavioral science research within and outside of academia.
