I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Psychology at UC San Diego, working with Ed Vul in the Computational Cognition Lab. My main research interests include producing computational models and conducting behavioral experiments in order to examine the human mind's implicit knowledge of uncertainty in its environment, and its effects on the interface between learning, language, and cognition. I have a developing interest in the recursive social inference processes underlying communication and pedagogy.

Previously I was an undergraduate at the University of Rochester, majoring in Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Linguistics, and Statistics, and minoring in Computer Science. During my time there, I primarily conducted research with Steven Piantadosi (colala) and Florian Jaeger (HLP Lab).
