I’m interested in the cognitive mechanisms that allow people to flexibly coordinate with one another. In particular, I study the formation of conventions and norms 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.
I received BS degrees in Mathematics and Cognitive Science from Indiana University in 2014. My undergraduate research interests included:
- perceptual organization (with James Townsend and Joseph Houpt)
- information diffusion in brain networks (with Olaf Sporns and Joaquin Goñi)
- collective behavior & convention-formation (with Rob Goldstone)
