I’m a PhD student studying cognitive psychology at UNSW. I received my BA in psychology from the University of Maryland and my Masters of Science in experimental psychology from Syracuse University. My research interests include studying the effects of interruptions and time-pressure on decision-making. I have several years of experience as a teaching assistant for a range of psychology courses. I am also a member of the UNSW Women in Maths and Science Champions Program, where I participate in outreach activities to encourage and inspire women to pursue careers in math and science.

I have been using R since the start of my graduate studies in 2015. I essentially use R for all my data analysis, modeling, and visualization. This year, I designed my first Shiny App (an interactive website to explore a dataset on baby names in Australia) in R.
I have recently started using Overleaf and learning LaTeX in 2018 for writing papers and other documents, such as my CV. I also believe it is a great tool for collaborations.
I am an avid supporter of open science and greatly value their mission to “increase the openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research.”
