I am currently the lecturer for the Cognitive Science Program at Yale University. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Psychology department at Yale, working with Dr. Yarrow Dunham in the Social Cognitive Development Lab, and Dr. Julian Jara-Ettinger in the Computational Social Cognition Lab. I completed my PhD in Logic, Computation, and Methodology at Carnegie Mellon University in 2020, and my dissertation (Learning a Theory of Mind) was advised by Dr. David Danks.

My interests lie in how we learn, represent, and reason about the hidden structure of the social world. I approach this question from both a descriptive, scientific perspective (how do we, as cognitive agents, learn about the social world?) as well as a normative, philosophical perspective (how should we, as scientists, learn about human minds and societies?). My work draws heavily on computational methods, as well as insights from cognitive science, social psychology, and philosophy of science.
