I started a Ph.D. program this past fall at UVa. I graduated from Vassar College and spent a year after graduation as a teacher at the laboratory nursery school there. After getting my Master's in Psychology at Brandeis University, I worked at a company where I get to conduct research on children's toys and digital games. My personality is pretty silly and playful, although I am definitely shy when I first meet people. In my free time, I like to play childhood games and find vintage toys.
