I’m a social psychologist on the Compassion team at Facebook. I’m particularly interested in the impact of technology on people’s well-being, and I use a variety of quantitative methods to measure and understand the positive and negative effects of social media on people’s lives. Before joining Facebook, I earned a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where my research focused generally on emotions, moral judgment, religious cognition, and mind perception.
