Doctoral Candidate

BA, Psychology, Bryn Mawr College
MA, Sociology, University of Chicago


I am PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Chicago, and my research interests lie at the intersection of culture and cognition. My work broadly focuses on the effects of experience on perception, and on the body's role in processes of meaning making. I have a background in psychology, and in my work bring research in social psychology and cognitive neuroscience to bear on sociological issues pertaining both to theory broadly, and to culture specifically.
