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:
- 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)
