About Me

As a Biology and Psychology student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I knew early on that I wanted to study human and animal social behaviors. After taking evolution-based science classes, I became fascinated by evolution’s role in shaping the brain and behavior, and set out to become an expert on the subject. I conducted research with Barbara Frederickson’s positive emotion and psychophysiology (PEP) lab on campus, and I was the Editor-in-Chief of UNC’s research magazine, Carolina Scientific.

After graduating in 2011, I worked as an Editorial Intern at Psychology Today, and I author a blog in the Evolutionary Psychology section of the web site called, The Stone Age Mind.

Currently, I’m exploring the intersection of culture and science as an Assistant Science Editor at The Huffington Post.

I’m originally from the mountains of Asheville, NC.
