I teach a variety of courses including Research Methods in Psychology, Statistics for Psychology, Conservation Psychology, the Psychology of Human Resilience, and the Psychology of Genocide. I conduct research in political psychology (e.g., terrorism, genocide, peace & conflict, decision-making), social cognition (e.g., cognitive complexity), and the scholarship of teaching and learning (e.g., peer assessment, educational technology, MOOCs, etc.). I revised an open textbook for Research Methods in Psychology and am currently working on a revision of an open textbook for Social Psychology.

I am currently the Chair of the Provincial Psychology Articulation Committee, the Director of Research, Resources, and Special Initiatives on the Society for the Teaching of Psychology’s Early Career Psychologists Committee, a member of the Task Force on Undergraduate Skills Assessment of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, and a Guest Editor for the Journal Psychology Teaching and Learning.

I am a member of the Association for Psychological Science, the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, the Society for Personality & Social Psychology, the Social Psychology Network, Sigma Xi, and the International Society of Political Psychology.
