My research focuses primarily on the psychology of religion, with interests in causal thinking and explanation, perception of agency in self and others, and moral cognition.

I received my B.A. (honours) in Psychology from the University of Winnipeg in 1999, and my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Harvard University in 2005 . From 2005-2007, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Western Ontario, with fellowship support from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada . Since 2007, I have been an assistant professor at the Univeristy of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
