I like to work on teams that use science and tech to address societal challenges.
As a PhD graduate, I have 6 years experience researching in the areas of social and cognitive psychology. I have 10 peer-reviewed research articles (6 first-author), which have been collectively cited almost 150 times (Google Scholar). These studies have introduced novel theory, methods, and measurements; and they have all aimed to answer questions with real-world significance. My most-cited article (“Does the uncanny valley exist?...”) has lead to 3 media interviews, including one with New Scientist in October 2016.
As Assistant Research Scientist at New York University, I oversee all psychological measures (100+) in The Human Project -- a large-scale, smartphone-based population study. This involves managing measurement selection, implementation, language translation, adaptation (e.g., for children or older adults), documentation, psychometric evaluation and validation. These measures include surveys as well as gamified neurocognitive tasks (e.g., Flanker, Stroop).
