I'm a post-doctoral fellow in the Psychology Department at Harvard working with Liz Phelps. I was previously a grad student in the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab working with Sam Gershman. I study how we make inferences about unknowable or uncertain things, and how those inferences contribute to learning. Some of the hidden inferences that I'm interested in are our own feelings and internal cues, other peoples' feelings, and how much control we have over the world around us. I use computational modeling and neuroimaging to investigate how these inference processes come about. 

In my spare time, you might find me trying out a new restaurant or exploring a trail with my dog, Piper. You can also check out the Harvard Women in Psychology group, which I co-founded as a grad student.
