I am a Researcher working on Amazon Alexa.

Prior to working at Amazon, I was an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Denison University, and I received my PhD from the Psychology Department at the University of California, San Diego where I worked in the Rayner Eyetracking Lab.

I have over 10 years of experience designing and conducting research in academic and industry settings. I’ve conducted everything from small-scale usability studies to exploratory analyses on data sets with close to a million observations. I understand the importance of asking the right questions, I relish finding the right statistical tools and analysis techniques to solve the problems that I am working on, and I am passionate about telling stories with data. My strong background in statistics coupled with substantial experience communicating research to both novice and expert audiences leave me uniquely situated to extract insights from data and communicate their implications to various stakeholders.
