I obtained my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey – New Brunswick in 2013 and joined Heterodox Academy as Research Director in May of 2016. My research interests include how moral convictions produce motivated reasoning within the political domain, how this motivated reasoning can distort research in the social sciences, and how it can lead to political intolerance that creates obstacles to political compromise. I am also a member of the Best Practices in Science Movement, and work to promote scientific integrity practices in the social sciences. In my free time I play lots of ice hockey.
