IMG_8111.jpg
I am an Assistant Professor at the BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway and a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany. Broadly speaking, I research psychological processes and human behavior, with a particular focus on non-normative behaviors. Recent topics include people's perceptions of social outliers, what drives fanaticism, and the sharing of misinformation and propaganda.   

I received my PhD at Yale University in 2021. Prior to that, I completed degrees in Computer Science and Psychology at New York University.
