I’m a PhD student in the Department of Psychology at Stanford, working with Noah Goodman and the Computation & Cognition Lab.

My primary interests are in social cognition: how do we represent knowledge about one another and reason with that knowledge? How do individuals organize themselves into structured collectives? How do conventions and norms emerge within those structures?

I use an interdisciplinary combination of computational and experimental methods to investigate these questions. My research is supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a Stanford Graduate Fellowship.

I received BS degrees in Mathematics and Cognitive Science from Indiana University in 2014. My undergraduate research interests included:

Additionally, I spent the summers of 2012 and 2013 as an Edward A. Knapp Undergraduate Fellow at the Santa Fe Institute, working with Simon DeDeo.
