I am a Master’s student in the History, Quantitative, and Theoretical Psychology (HQT) area of the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University (SFU). I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Victoria (UVIC), where I became interested in philosophical and theoretical questions surrounding methodology and knowledge claims within the discipline. In my final year at UVIC, I focused my research on conceptions of the nature of science among academics, and the implications of this for trust-in-science. My current interests include the theoretical underpinnings of the replication crisis in psychological science, theoretical and applied psychometrics, and how recent research on the therapeutic use of psychedelics may serve as a case study for questions relating to the nature of evidence, values in science, and the philosophy of knowledge production.
