About me

I am interested broadly in what it means for people to understand and to think well. I am currently studying what people think makes a good explanation, and how this might agree with or deviate from ideal Bayesian reasoning. My previous research focused on stereotyping and social inferences: specifically, using Bayesian models to clarify the ways in which people use and mis-use social group information, as well as how this relates to the moral implications of stereotyping.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cognitive Science of Values at Princeton University. I work with Dr. Tania Lombrozo in the Concepts and Cognition Lab.

I completed my Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Toronto working with Dr. William Cunningham.
