- B.A. in Psychology and Economics, Claremont McKenna College
Hayley received her B.A. in Psychology and Economics from Claremont McKenna College in 2020, where she was a research assistant and lab manager at the Kravis Leadership Institute. Under Dr. Ronald Riggio, she completed her undergraduate thesis examining the role of past experience on shared leadership behaviors and group processes. After graduation, Hayley worked for two years as an applied researcher on the people analytics team at Cisco. Her work focused primarily on research design, creating data analysis processes, and qualitative data collection. Outside of the lab, Hayley enjoys yoga, hiking, and cooking new recipes.
Hayley’s research interests are broadly concerned with the role of culture in how people behave in social situations. Her research will focus on why people do (or don’t) engage in prosocial behavior, especially relating to global social issues like sustainability and community health. She is particularly interested in the gap between affect and behavior, along with how cultural or environmental factors can influence the extent to which we behave according to our values.
