About

MY BACKGROUND

I am a social and behavioral science researcher located at the nexus of Communication and Social Psychology.

 

I have over six years of experience in conducting research, both in organizational contexts at the consultancy Korn Ferry and the production company Population Media Center, as well as in an academic research center.

My research expertise is in the area of persuasive messaging, including strategic message design, the social and psychological effects of media, and tools to spur attitude and behavior change.

 

I have strong competencies in designing studies, employing quantitative methodologies, using analytical and statistical software, and reporting findings through written, visual, and verbal channels.
