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

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:

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.
