I am an assistant professor in the Psychology Department at Grinnell College, a small liberal-arts college where the major components of my work include. Where you can find me.

Advising: Guiding students through the Psychology Major

This role has led me to think deeply about

Teaching: Teaching psychological science to train students in research methods, critical thinking, information/digital literacy, and navigating ambiguity

I regularly teach

Research: How nonlinear dynamics of movement systems support the use of code-like, symbolic information

My motivating research themes organize an approach I like to summarize as "How could a milkshake act like a computer!?"

I am indebted to student collaborators and collaborators elsewhere.

Please don't read more of my c.v. than you want to, whether organized chronologically or thematically.
