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.

In my research, we use machine learning models to better understand the neural machinery supporting human communication and cooperation in real-world contexts. I’m currently working on three related topics: (a) using large language models to capture how information is transmitted from brain to brain via spoken narratives, (b) using deep reinforcement learning to study emergent cooperative behavior and “brain-to-brain” coupling in fully synthetic ecosystems, and (c) developing resources for a more community-driven cognitive neuroscience.
