I’m interested in social interaction and the cognitive mechanisms that allow people to flexibly coordinate and communicate with one another. Recently, I’ve been focusing on the formation of conventions using interactive multi-player experiments and computational models of language and social reasoning.
I’m currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Psychology at Stanford, working with Noah Goodman in the Computation & Cognition Lab. I graduated from Indiana University in 2014 with degrees in Mathematics and Cognitive Science and spent the summers of 2012 and 2013 as an Edward A. Knapp Undergraduate Fellow at the Santa Fe Institute. My research is supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a Stanford Graduate Fellowship.
In Fall 2019, I will start a post-doc as a C.V. Starr Fellow at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute.
