Category learning, probability learning
My background includes research in working memory, psychometrics, and research in visual cognition during problem solving. I completed an internship with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee as a survey specialist and data analyst in 2009. I earned my Ph.D. in 2015 for studying human visual response to probabilistic error in abstract vs. semantically familiar contexts. While in graduate school, I taught multiple undergraduate courses for University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Strayer University. My teaching experience includes undergraduate courses in General Psychology, Statistics, and Research Methods. In 2013, students at Georgia Institute of Technology nominated me for the “Thank a Teacher” award for excellence in teaching.
