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 examination of the theoretical underpinnings of the replication crisis in psychological science, historical analysis regarding the nature and scope of psychological science inquiry, and of significance testing and statistical inference practices within the discipline.
