I'm a PhD student in social psychology at the University of Oxford. I did my undergrad in cognitive science at UCLA. After graduation, I moved to Silicon Valley to work at a venture-backed startup. It took me six week to discover that I have no interest in tech, at which point I quit and began plotting my way back to academia. I bounced around for a bit, including an internship at lab in Belgium, before beginning as a research assistant in the department of psychology at Harvard. This experience inspired new crises of faith, though I did manage to last two full years. Having been rejected from my first two rounds of applications to grad school, I spent six months serving croissants and other viennoiseries at a café in Boston while giving the grad school thing one last go. Now I'm here in England. Interested to see what happens next.
