Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! As a former Splash student and Bay Arean, I'm ecstatic to be a Splash teacher! My studies at Stanford have been a hodgepodge of education, computer science, psychology, and urban studies. Outside of classes, I love biking aggressively in suburban neighborhoods, climbing fruit trees, riding trains, and teaching.

Future classes (I hope):
-The Science of Lie Detection: lessons from the TV Show Lie to Me
-6 Days: A Look into the Stanford Prison Experiment

S5180: Intro to Introversion in Splash Fall 2016 (Dec. 03 - 04, 2016)
Are you an introvert? Have introverts in your life? Curious to learn about what introversion is? In a society where 50 to 74% consider themselves extroverts, us introverts are often misunderstood and forgotten. Come hear about what introversion actually is and why those personality tests on Buzzfeed aren’t all that accurate. We’ll bust some myths about introversion and also dive into personality psychology research. We’ll also have time to take a real personality test and have some great conversations about how introverts can fit into our extroverted society. (You don’t need to be introverted or know what introversion is. Everyone is welcome!)

Did you know that there are two missing human emotions not featured in Riley’s Headquarters? Come and learn about what really goes on inside your brain! We’ll discuss how Inside Out actually depicts real neuroscience and psychological principles / theories super well but also what Pixar got wrong. Be ready for an emotional roller coaster.
