I am currently an Assistant Professor of Communication at Santa Clara University. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Agent-Based Social Simulation Modeling at the University of Southern California (USC). Prior to that, I was Postdoc in the CESAR Lab (Cognitive Embodied Social Agents Research) in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University. I lead the M3 Lab, a multi-disciplinary, collaborative group engaging in research on morality, games, and inclusivity.

& Methodologies

My academic roots are as a cognitive scientist/psychologist. Since my beginnings, I have learned and applied concepts and tools to this cognitive cognitive foundations, such as neuroscience, media effects, media psychology, virtual environments, and agent modeling. I utilize visualizations, intelligent artificial agents, computational tools (agent modeling, machine learning), and experimental design to address my curiosities about human behavior.


I am fortunate to have access to resources that may be inaccessible for many. Given this privilege, I am actively seeking new ways to advocate for inclusivity in academia. In addition to addressing racial and gender biases, I push for inclusivity in terms of culture (international colleagues), personality (introverted), communicative and learning styles.
