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 NSERC. I was a visiting researcher at University of Vienna in 2014 and a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University (2015-2016). In 2016, I received a VENI grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), though I declined it and moved to University of Macau to take up an Assistant Professor position in Department of Psychology (2016-2021), where I taught Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, and History of Psychology. In 2021, I resigned from my tenure-track position, partly because of the current state of academia and partly to move 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. For a full list of my publications see here.

For about a year, I worked as a Research Analyst at IcebergIQ (2021-2022). In 2022, I joined Brendan Wood International as a Field Director. I continue to serve as ad hoc reviewer for Theory & Psychology and Integrative Psychological & Behavioral Science, and as consulting editor for Review of General Psychology.
