Welcome to my homepage.  I am a graduate student in Social Psychology at The Ohio State University working with Dr. Richard Petty. My research interests lay at the intersection of attitudes and persuasion, social cognition, and the self.  In one program of research on implicit social cognition, I examine the role of the self and individual differences on the effects of primes on judgments and behavior. In other programs of research on attitudes and persuasion, I examine attitude and self-strength, apply concepts from the attitudes literature to the study of the self, and apply concepts from the self literature to the study of attitudes and persuasion.
