I am a PhD Student in Psychology and Neuroscience at Princeton University, advised by Jon Cohen and Tom Griffiths. I am broadly interested in human and machine intelligence, and I use computational (neuro)scientific approaches to study high-level cognitive functions such as learning, decision-making, memory, and control.

Previously, I was an undergraduate at Swarthmore College, where I studied Computer Science and Philosophy. I wrote a thesis under Alan Baker using computational learning theory to formalize problems in moral epistemology.

I have also spent time at Kallyope, the University of Oxford, Mercury Fund, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Breakthrough Houston.
