I am a Professor of Psychology at San Francisco State University (SFSU), where I have the great honor of directing the Cognition and Social Equity (CaSE) laboratory and serving as the Co-Coordinator of the Mind, Brain & Behavior Program.


After receiving a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Yale University in 1997, I became a faculty member at Brown University and then at Williams College. In 2001, I joined SFSU’s Psychology Department. I am elated to be part of a department and institution that celebrate diversity while upholding rigorous academic and research standards.
