My research examines how language reflects social and psychological dynamics. A lot of my work focuses on how deception affects language and communication processes, which has led to the creation of the Contextual Organization of Language and Deception (COLD) model and my ideas about how deceptive discourse production works like a faucet. For a recent review of deception and language research, please see my chapter in the Handbook of Language Analysis in Psychology.

I use computational approaches to gather and analyze language data, while also performing experiments to examine relationships between humans and technology.

Please see my Google Scholar page and CV for a list of publications.


Outside of my research, I'm an avid musician, playing piano, saxophone, guitar, and singing since I was five years old. I love playing open mics from time to time.
