Teaching and Research Interests:

My teaching interests developing authentic research experiences for undergraduate students in psychophysiology. As part of this mission, I created the undergraduate psychophysiology teaching laboratory, in which we focus on gathering and interpreting electroencephalography (EEG) data. We explore psychophysiology from a multicultural perspective.

Current Projects:

Working with multi-institutional team of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to develop an online resource hub for decolonized psychology curriculum materials. Funded by American Psychological Science Association (APS).

Working with researchers as part of a global multi-site EEG replication project, #EEGManyLabs in conjunction with ##Global Brain Consortium with the mission to strengthen linkages between neuroscientists across borders, to develop collaborative experimental standards, and FAIR data-sharing and analysis of EEG.
