Bio and Affiliations

I received my Ph.D. in Social Psychology with a concentration in the Psychology of Peace of Violence from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2009 and joined Clark University in the same year as faculty in the Psychology Department. I am part of the Social Psychology program at Clark and am also affiliated with the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Center for Gender, Race, and Area Studies (CGRAS).

I am a co-founder and co-editor of the Journal of Social and Political Psychology, a not-for-profit, publicly funded open access journal that does not charge authors or institutions for open access publishing, and I served several years on the Governing Council and as Vice President of the International Society for Political Psychology. I currently co-organize (with Dr. Fouad Bou Zeineddine) a virtual meeting series on the psychology of resistance in violent and repressive contexts, alongside a book we are editing on this topic.
