Equity Initiative at WGU

I am currently project lead on a university-wide research and planning initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to understand the systems and processes that lead to inequity of academic outcomes for undeserved populations at Western Governors University (WGU). See here for more information about the project.

I am leading the research initiative as part of WGU Labs’ partnership with Edquity. WGU will utilize the Edquity application to help administer emergency aid for students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. See here for more information about the project.

TimeCoach™ Efficacy Study

I am leading the efficacy research initiative to assess the impact of WGU Labs’ TimeCoach™ product (design lead, Brian Tillman) on student academic and psychosocial outcomes at WGU. See here for more information about the project.

Communications for HBES

In my role as Communications Officer for the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, I have improved our social media visibility by a factor of 10, and introduced a new bimonthly e-newsletter that includes original content.

Academic Research

I produce academic research, with my work centered on attachment evolution and development, human development, pubertal maturation, romantic relationship functioning, and academic outcomes in higher education. These works can be found on my Scholarly Publications page.
