I am a third year PhD student working with Dr. Brooke Foucault Welles. My interests cover online hate speech and leadership in teams. Currently, I lead a project on how hate speech impacts LGBTQ+ people. Specifically, I study how hate speech victims utilize moral disengagement mechanisms in response to receiving hate speech.
I am also working in collaboration with igraph and Women in Network Science to study leadership in open-source communities. We are trying to examine how different leadership structures impact project longevity and how moderators can support underrepresented coders.
Before coming to Northeastern I received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At UW-Madison I researched internal bias interventions, and the relationship between bilingualism, semantic networks and creativity. Most recently I was a lab manager for a cognitive neuroscience lab at Penn State. At Penn State I studied cross-situational word learning and how people learn from linguistic networks.
