Student Co-Research, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance (Dec 2020-Dec 2021)
Under the supervision of Daniel Hartley, our team is using ethnographic methods to understand why certain minority groups struggle at the conservatoire, ultimately to provide suggestions for improvement. My specific project focuses on the low-income student experience. 

Research Assistant, The Automaticity in Cognition, motivation, and evaluation (ACME) Lab, Yale University (Aug 2017-Jan 2018)
Under the supervision of Anton Gollwitzer and Dr. John Bargh, I assisted in running studies, analyzing data, and writing reports centered around pattern deviance aversion and its relationship to bias and prejudice.
