I am a social psychologist who studied at Morehead State University (MSU; KY, USA) and East Tenneessee State University (ETSU; TN, USA). In 2015 I graduated from ETSU with my PhD in Psychology and pursued further career training as a Post Doctoral Fellow in the Research School of Psychology at ANU.

As a Research Fellow I work with Dr. Kate Reynolds on several grant funded projects.

I am working on a project titled "Building successful diverse communities: What works and why?which is supported by the ARC Linkage Project scheme. This project focuses on how to build social harmony and tolerance, while reducing tension between different ethnic groups, in communities across Australia. 

Another project I work on, titled "School identification, school climate and school outcomes: Evidence from  ACT Schools", which examines the role of social identity in school functioning.
