I’m a cognitive neuroscientist investigating how our brains process social information. My recent experiments have focused on the integration of expert advice when making decisions, and linking the neural processing of reputation-related social information to social media use. Ultimately, with the knowledge gained by my research, I hope to contribute to a better understanding of socially motivated human behavior.

This summer I will be joining the faculty at Michigan State University as an assistant professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences. I’m currently a postdoctoral research scientist in Hauke Heekeren's lab at Freie Universität Berlin, and I teach courses at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. My Ph.D. is from Columbia University in New York, and my B.S. is from the University of California at Los Angeles.
