Personal profile

Personal information

I obtained my B.A. in Psychology and Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville (1999). After a two year hiatus in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California, I completed my M.A. in Experimental Psychology at Humboldt State University (2004). Next, I worked with Jeff Joireman at Washington State University, where I obtained my PhD in Experimental Psychology (2007). My first academic position was an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Sciences at Singapore Management University. After three wonderful years in Singapore, I transitioned to an Assistant Professor position at the VU University, Amsterdam. I have since been promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure at the VU University and continue to work and live in the beautiful, vibrant city of Amsterdam.
