I received my PhD from New York University in 2014 before joining the Rutgers faculty. ​My research interests lie in the cognitive, perceptual, and affective processes that predict and promote successful goal pursuit. In my lab--the Regulation, Action, and Motivated Perception (RAMP) Lab--we use a multi-method approach that incorporates perceptual, behavioral, and psychophysiological methods, to test the conscious and nonconscious processes that assist people in mitigating threats, attaining rewards, and resisting temptations. Our exploration spans multiple domains, testing self-regulatory tools that are implicated in dieting, relationships, smoking, exercise, politics, race, gender, and climate change. Across these various pursuits, we seek to both better understand the self-regulatory strategies that people spontaneously employ as well as to develop interventions that can assist in combating some of society's most complex self-regulatory problems.
