About Me



I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Purchase College, SUNY. I received my PhD in Social Psychology from The Ohio State University in 2015.  My primary research interests are in cognitive abstraction, self-regulation, and self-esteem. I am particularly interested in how abstract processing improves self-control as well as how exposure to abstract  vs. concrete stimuli (in the form of words vs. pictures) improves self-control.
