Research Interests

Some current research interests within psychology revolve around configural and evaluative learning, non-conscious perception, and identifying the limits of socialized (relative to evolved) group biases.


I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from Saint Mary’s University (Halifax, Nova Scotia) in 2011. I subsequently received a research scholarship from the Irish Research Council (IRCSET) in 2012 to complete a research PhD in Experimental Psychology from Maynooth University, which was awarded in 2016. I next completed two externally funded postdoctoral projects in Brazil (Federal University of Sao Carlos) and Canada (Montreal Neurological Instite) before joining USP in mid-2019.
