I am a computational social psychologist interested in (1) the psychological processes that drive people’s interactions during moral and political engagement online, and (2) how digital environments shape the expression of emotions like moral outrage. I leverage multiple methodologies that include social media and big data analytics, behavioral experiments, and computational modeling. I completed my Ph.D. in social psychology at NYU working primarily with Jay Van Bavel. Currently, I am a NSF postdoctoral fellow working with Molly Crockett at Yale University.
