After receiving a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Yale University in 1997, I became a faculty member at Brown University, Williams College, and San Francisco State University, where I attained a Full Professorship.

In 2022, I moved from the US to the UK and joined London Metropolitan University's Psychology faculty.


I feel most at home in academic settings that celebrate diversity while upholding rigorous academic and research standards.
