I began my research at Edinburgh Napier University in 2021, moving to Scotland from the United States. Previously, I have done research in animal behaviour for my undergraduate at The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota USA, where I got my BA in Biology and Psychology.

My research at Edinburgh Napier is on false memories and fake news. In particular, I am looking into the effect of bias, timing, and trust on the correction of false memories for fake news articles. This research is important for the current state of social media and news reporting, and will hopefully contribute to the understanding of effective fact-checking behaviour.
