Associate Professor of Psychology

I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston (in 2016, Olin was ranked #3 "Best Undergraduate Engineering Program" by U.S. News & World Report and in 2017 it was ranked #4 "Best Classroom Experience," #7 "Students Study the Most," and #4 "Professors Get High Marks" by Princeton Review).  I also teach in the Psychology Department at Wellesley College and in Spring 2017 will co-teach in the Theater Department at Babson College.

My work-life is split between conducting research, teaching classes, seeing clients for psychotherapy, and contributing to the growth and success of Olin and to my field.  You can find more information about each of these activities on the various pages of this website.

I am always excited to hear from people who are interested in my work, so please do not hesitate to e-mail me.  You can reach me at:
