Ph.D., 2016, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
I study the fundamental representations and computations that underlie our ability to navigate the social and physical world. My work spans across ages, cultures, and clinical populations, but my primary focus is on early childhood. My research combines behavioral studies with mathematical models and computer simulations to develop and test cognitive theories. To date, much of my work specifically looks at how we represent and reason about other people’s minds and on how we infer what they know, think, and want.
