My research interest is in the interplay of Cognitive Science and AI. I want to use computational models to understand how we make sense of the physical world, other people, and ourselves. As a secondary goal, I hope to use this understanding to inspire more human-compatible Artificial Intelligence.
Currently, I am studying intuitive psychology in infants and machines with Dr. Brenden Lake and Dr. Moira Dillon at New York University. Prior to this, I was a research assistant with Dr. Guangyu Robert Yang at MIT.
Outside of science, I am interested in analytic philosophy, especially in metaphysics and the philosophy of mind. I am a photographer, Argentine Tango dancer, botanist, flutist, and traveler.
I am always happy to connect with like-minded people. You can reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
