I am currently a PhD candidate in the School of Communication at The Ohio State University (OSU). My research interests are aggression, anger, and personality (e.g., narcissism).

Prior to my PhD, I earned my master’s degree in Cultural Psychology at the University of Oslo, in Norway. During that time, I contacted my current advisor, Dr. Brad Bushman, because I was interested in examining the relationship between narcissism and aggression. Dr. Bushman invited me to OSU as a visiting scholar and that visit inspired me to apply for the PhD program.

My goal is to inform theory and outline which interventions are best suited to help people change and manage their impulses to aggress towards others.
