Hello! I am a fourth year Ph.D. student studying social psychology at Florida State University. 

My research explores how affective processes inform attitudes and guide behaviors during social interactions. Much of my recent research has explored how automatic threat responses and implicit attitudes affect people’s perceptions of the police and how threat-related processes shape behaviors during police-civilian interactions. I also have ongoing lines of research on the implications of threat perception and threat sensitivity for political attitudes.
