I’m currently a research scholar and lecturer working with Uri Hasson and Ken Norman at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. I completed my PhD with Jim Haxby at Dartmouth College.

My research leverages machine learning models to better understand the neural machinery supporting human communication and cooperation in ecological contexts. I’m currently working on three related topics: (a) using deep neural networks as model organisms for cooperative behavior in an artificial ecosystem, (b) modeling how information is transmitted from brain to brain via spoken narratives, and (c) developing resources for a more community-driven cognitive neuroscience.
