I am a psychologist interested in personality and psychometrics. My research focuses on the motivational underpinnings of helping and aggression. I recently defended my dissertation at the University of Miami, where I am a member of the Evolution and Human Behavior laboratory. In June 2019 I start a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School. I will primarily focus on analyzing data from the Army STARRS project, which seeks to identify risk factors for suicide among military personnel.
I tweet about psychology and statistics at @w_mcauliffe.
