My name is Eric, and I am user researcher and social psychologist. 

I received my Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington in August of 2017. In my graduate studies, I studied social and personality psychology, particularly focusing on friendship formation and initial interactions between strangers.

I have over 10+ years of experience in quantitative and qualitative research methodology, project management, and translating key insights into product impact and growth. I am currently full-time employed as a Research Lead at Airbnb, conducting research for high-priority initiatives to keep users safe.

    "Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

    "Eric has really great intuition. Throughout our almost 10 months of working together, he is always able to foresee any potential icebergs and take the initiative to start useful research."
