In 2009, I completed my BA with advanced honors in psychology at Georgia State University in my hometown, Atlanta, GA. At Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, I received an MA in General Experimental Psychology (2012). My master’s thesis research investigated affective and physiological desensitization to violent video games through the use of facial electromyography (EMG). Other projects have examined physiological differences of playing an active versus a non-active video game console and the influence of personality (specifically, neuroticism and agreeableness) on desensitization.
Broadly, I am interested in the use of experimental measures to investigate emotional, social, and cognitive mechanisms underlying the perception of media.
