"The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge."

-Bertrand Russell

I am currently a PhD student in Experimental Psychology at Oxford. My academic research has been published in Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience and Proceedings of the Cognitive Science Society. I've given talks about my work at Brown, NYU, Harvard, and Boston University, as well as professional conferences like Cogsci Society and Society for Neuroscience. I did my undergrad at UCLA studying cognitive science, and I've previously worked in cogsci labs at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies, the Free University of Brussels, and Harvard. I identify as a cognitive scientist, because if you tell people you're a psychologist they all say something to the effect of, "haha so I bet you're, like, reading my mind right now." I rarely am.


My writing for a general audience has appeared in venues such as Psychology Today and Scientific American. All of my pieces can be found in the writing section of my website, and you can find a selection of my favorite ones here. My latest project is a podcast, called Cognitive Revolution, in which I interview leading scientists and thinkers about the personal side of their intellectual journey.

If you want to keep up with my work, the best way to do so is my weekly letter, in which I send links to the most interesting stuff I came across that week, as well as any new podcast episodes or articles I published. I know the last thing you need is one more thing to clog up your inbox. But it's super short and if you find any of my work interesting then there's a good chance this will appeal to you as well. Hell, even if you don't find my work interesting, go ahead and sign up anyway. Who knows? It might get better.

I'm also a jazz singer, though not a very dedicated one.

You can also follow me on Twitter, where I tweet about interesting things, or the 'Gram, where I mostly post pictures of books. And, honestly, if you've made it this far, it's probably worth a shot.
