After completing bachelor's degrees in psychology and computer science at New York University, I joined the Automaticity in Cognition, Motivation, and Evaluation Laboratory of Prof. John A. Bargh at Yale University.
Broadly construed, I study social cognition, social perception, and motivation. Currently I am working on: (1) How do people think and feel about patterns and pattern deviancy, and how do these judgments impact social phenomena, (2) Generalized person perception: How the individual perceives people in general, and (3) Behavior-change interventions and motivational processes.
