Before starting at Dartmouth, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the psychology department at Harvard University and before that completed my Ph.D. in philosophy and psychology at Yale in 2015. My lab's research focuses on the psychological representation of possibilities, moral judgment, causal reasoning, semantics, and theory of mind. In studying these aspects of cognition and their intersection, we draw on tools from philosophy, psychology, linguistics, and computer science.
