I'm a 5th year PhD student in the Behavioral Science program at the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago.
My areas of research are impression management, trust, and communication.
My interest in behavioral science stems from my experiences growing up as a shy and introverted kid. Often not knowing what to say to others, I instead became a careful observer of those around me. It wasn't long before I started to wonder more about why people behave the way they do, why they think what they think, and so on. A behavioral scientist was born!
Outside of doing research, I'm a huge fan of mindfulness meditation, watching dating-themed reality TV shows (e.g., The Bachelor, Married at First Sight), reading the news, creative writing, and taking walks.
