About

I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology at University of Toronto in 2015, with a thesis titled “Associative Learning as a Source of Visual Bias.” My doctoral research was supported by an Alexander Graham Bell doctoral scholarship from the Natural Sciences & Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). I was a visiting researcher at University of Vienna in 2014 and an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University (2015-2016). In 2014, I also attended the Copenhagen Summer School in Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind, and began studying phenomenological psychology beginning with the works of Amedeo Giorgi. In 2016, I received a VENI grant from the Dutch Research Council (NWO), though I declined it and moved to University of Macau to take up an Assistant Professor position in Department of Psychology (2016-2021). In Macau, I taught Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, and History of Psychology. In 2021, I resigned from my tenure-track position and moved back to Canada. My book, Experimental Psychology and Human Agency was published by Springer in 2019. I co-edited, with Jaan Valsiner, a follow-up book, titled Experimental Psychology: Ambitions & Possibilities, in which some of the themes from my first book are further explored.

Since 2021, I’ve held several positions across different industries. Working as Research Analyst at IcebergIQ, I helped SaaS companies gather market insights (2021-2022). I worked as a Field Director at Brendan Wood International, an investment advisory firm that specializes in gathering and providing performance intelligence pertaining to capital markets (2022-2023). Since 2023, I have been working as a writer and editor at Our Kids Media. Our Kids Media offers assistance to families who are searching for private/independent schools, camps, and retirement communities across Canada.
