Instructor of Research Psychology

I'm thrilled to be back at Seattle Pacific University, teaching statistics courses to psychology majors and teaching and advising in the MS in Research Psychology program, at the same school where I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics in 2019.

I am also PhD candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles. I'm in the Department of Psychology — Quantitative Area, advised by Dr. Amanda K. Montoya. In 2020, I received a M.A in Psychology from UCLA. My research focuses on statistical power analysis and how it is determined in moderation, mediation, and moderated mediation models. In addition, I work on teaching and promoting open science practices.
