I completed a BA in psychology at the University of Kansas, a MA in social psychology & program evaluation at Claremont Graduate University, and my PhD in social psychology at the University of Arizona. I started as an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Beloit College in 2023, though I’d taught at Beloit since 2020.

My primary interests revolve around distress and identity, and how those phenomena are situated in particular cultural and historical contexts.

As the Principal Investigator of the SWIM lab, I enjoy doing research with a team of undergraduate students. Our aim is to explore the ways that characteristics of modernity and modernization relate to experiences of stress, wellbeing, and identity. See our Research Website for details about the lab.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, watching movies, spending time with my dog Deckard, and listening to music and playing bass guitar.
