I am an Assistant Professor in Organisational Behaviour in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship at Imperial College London. Prior to joining Imperial, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar in Organizational Behavior in the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. I received my PhD in Social and Personality Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin.
Broadly, I am interested in identity and its intersections with politics and technology. More specifically, my research examines 1) how identity acts as a barrier and bridge to mutual understanding between people in political and other contexts, and 2) how identities shape and are shaped by digital environments. I combine traditional methods (surveys, experiments) with novel methods (smartphone sensing, experience sampling) to study identity in both controlled and naturalistic settings.
