Welcome to my site!


I'm an Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. My research uses language to infer social and psychological processes, from deception to persuasion. 


I completed my PhD in Communication at Stanford University and my Masters and undergraduate degrees at Cornell University.


If you'd like an interactive way to understand my research and approaches, here's a tool that I've built: commPAIR.


I'm currently accepting PhD students, so please get in touch with me if you are interested in pursuing work in deception, language and text analysis, media psychology, or computer-mediated communication.
