I am a Ph.D. student at York University in Toronto, Canada working under the supervision of Dr. Raymond Mar in The Mar Lab. Broadly speaking, I work in social psychology with a specific interest in women's experiences and feminist research.
My Master's work looked at whether we evaluate texts based on the gender of the author and whether the seemingly universal negative evaluations of romance novels are due, at least in part, to their association with women.
Prior to beginning my work in psychology, I trained as a chef at Niagara College. Though I no longer work in the culinary industry, I still enjoy cooking and especially cake decorating.
