Other Work:

I strive to bring academic research to life for public audiences, whether they be laypeople, policymakers, or students. Examples of some of these efforts are included below. 

In 2016, I organized the first Psychology of Architecture Conference with Sam Gosling. The conference attracted 120+ attendees from 12 countries. Talks from the conference are available on YouTube.

I participated in a panel at the United Nations University on child trajectories into and out of non-state armed groups. Insights from this panel and two others are available in a publication by Rebecca Littman for UN policymakers.

I was lead teaching assistant for the University of Texas’s Fall 2015 Introduction to Psychology “Synchronized Massive Online Course” (SMOC). Learn more about the 1,500+ student class here or learn about the effectiveness of SMOCs compared to traditional classes here.

 

I also enjoy helping students develop their personal research interests and skills. I have advised two undergraduate honors theses, in addition to mentoring students through the SURE program as a member of my department's diversity committee.
