About Me

Hi, I’m Ryan! I just finished my PhD in experimental psychology with a minor in quantitative and computational methods. I completed my degree at Boston College where I worked in the Morality Lab under the advisement of Dr. Liane Young. I studied morality using experimental social psychological methods. I have conducted research on what people think others should and should not do, and how these beliefs influence their judgments of others. I also studied methods and statistics in psychology. I have conducted research highlighting how typical inferential statistical tests can fail to properly answer psychological questions.

I am currently searching for analytics jobs to start in the summer of 2023, looking for opportunities in the Los Angeles area specifically. My dream job would be to conduct consumer insights or user experience research in the gaming, sporting, gambling, or fitness industries. Therefore, if you’re a recruiter in one of these industries, and you’re looking for someone with strong quantitative research skills to rigorously answer empirical questions, please reach out. For more information about my quantitative research skills, see my “papers” and “data blog” pages.

I grew up and spent most of my life on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I received my B.A. in Psychology from California University of Pennsylvania, and my M.A. in Experimental Psychology from California State University, Northridge where I worked under the advisement of Drs. Abe Rutchick and Debbie Ma. In my free time, I like to binge Netflix shows with my wife, play video games, watch hockey, go to the gym, listen to podcasts, and attempt to improve my subpar chess skills.
