About Me.

I hold a Ph.D. in psychology with a specialization in evolution and human development from Oakland University. I currently work as a Research Scientist for WGU Labs, an education innovation hub striving to advance ingenuity in the higher education space. I also serve as the Communications Officer for HBES.

I have always been passionate about the role of education in one’s life, believing that knowledge is an immensely transformative force for good. Science communication underlies much of my current professional effort, with the ultimate goal being to increase public scientific literacy and inspire learning.

I enjoy reading, writing, and exploring mountains.
