Hello! I am currently a postdoc in Molly Crockett's lab at Yale where we are investigating narratives people tell about their own and others' moral actions. Previously, I completed my PhD at Johns Hopkins University under the supervision of Marina Bedny. My dissertation examined what people born blind come to understand about things they have never seen, like color.
I am broadly interested in how adults communicate and learn about each other's experiences through testimony, as well as how the stories we tell ourselves shapes what we understand about ourselves. My work takes many insights and methods from linguistics and philosophy, in addition to cognitive science and psychology.
