I’m a PhD student 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.
I’m interested in social interaction and the cognitive mechanisms that allow people to adapt to and flexibly communicate with one another. In particular, I study the formation of conventions using multi-player experiments and computational models of communication and social reasoning.
My research is supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a Stanford Graduate Fellowship.
