I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Toronto Metropolitan University, joining the faculty in July, 2022. I received my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from York University and a law degree from Queen’s University. In addition to over a decade of legal practice experience, I completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Toronto and have taught psychology and law for six years. My research interests are at the intersection of psychology and the law,  particularly the ways that social identities might affect the expression of rights, legal judgements, and experiences with violence and victimization.
