I am a behavioral marketing researcher and a fourth-year PhD student in Psychology at the Center for Adaptive Rationality (ARC) at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin.

My research primarily focuses on consumer behavior in online environments, currently pertaining to misinformation and microtargeting.

Prior to joining ARC, I earned a Master of Behavioral and Decision Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania. I also completed an MSc in Marketing with distinction (Trinity College Dublin) and a BA in Business Administration (Provadis School of International Management and Technology).

My research has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Current Opinion in Psychology, and Nature Human Behaviour.
