I am an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Columbia University and a member of the Columbia University Center for Integrative Animal Behavior. I supervise PhD students in Psychology and Neurobiology & Behavior, and Masters students in Statistics, Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences, and Neuroscience & Education.

I am a passionated instructor in using computational methods and programming in the behavioral sciences and in data visualization. I am an official R Studio instructor - also see here for more details. I also occasionally write sports data articles for FiveThirtyEight.
