Research interests

I am interested in how social group memberships (such as social class, sexual orientation, culture, and nationality) affect social perception. My research therefore aims to understand how our faces reflect our social identities and experiences, how our group memberships impact our perceptions of others, and how we mentally represent members of various social groups.

I received my BA from Cornell University in 2014, MA from the University of Toronto in 2015, and my PhD from the University of Toronto in 2019.
