I am a postdoctoral research associate at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

My research lies at the intersection of social psychology and health psychology with the goal to understand the psychological processes that underlie personal and social wellbeing, with a particular emphasis on compassion.

In particular, I study how prosocial emotions and contemplative practices, including meditation, shape positive social outcomes (e.g., bystander intervention, forgiveness, inclusivity, relationship formation) and health-related outcomes (e.g., cardiovascular recovery from stress, craving and desire, social connectivity and support).

My work is currently funded by the Mind & Life Institute and the
John Templeton Foundation through the Self, Motivation, and Virtue project.
