Currently, I am a lab manager/research coordinator in the Vision and Perception Neuroscience Lab (VPNL) at Stanford University, working with Dr. Kalanit Grill-Spector. Before joining VPNL, I was a research assistant in the Minds in Development lab at USC, working with Dr. Henrike Moll on young children's perspective-taking. Broadly, I'm interested in studying human cognition. I'm especially interested in studying social cognition, causal inference, and counterfactual reasoning throughout development and how human perception, such as high-level vision perception, plays a role in early cognitive development. I am familiar with using neuroimaging techniques such as MRI/fMRI and EEG. I also use programming languages such as MATLAB and R in my research.
I received my MA in Psychology from Pepperdine University and BA in Psychology from Boston University. I hope to pursue a Ph.D. in cognitive science in the near future.
Outside of research, I enjoy reading books, playing with my cats - Woody & Cat, drinking coffee, and doing outdoor activities in nature. I recently joined the Stanford Psychology Podcast as a host. My first episode chatting with Prof. David Lagnado it out now. Check it out here
