I am a PhD student in Organizational Behavior and Theory at Carnegie Mellon University. 

Broadly, my research seeks to understand the factors that shape peoples’ antisocial and prosocial behaviors, at the individual level, at the team level, and at the organizational level. 

The three research streams that I am currently working on are unethical behaviors, conflict and cooperation in teams and larger groups, and stereotyping and discrimination in employee selection procedures. 

My doctoral dissertation focuses on identifying individuals who are most likely to engage in unethical behaviors (e.g., cheating or stealing), especially in contexts, such as job interview settings, where we need to evaluate people’s antisocial tendencies despite their motivations to convey good impressions.

Prior to starting my doctoral work, I completed two Master’s degrees: one in Statistics and a second one in Quantitative Methods, Measurement and Evaluation. I am also interested in using my quantitative research skills to develop psychometric and statistical tools for behavioral researchers.
