Welcome to my site! I am a Psychology Ph.D. Candidate in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at Harvard University. My research focuses on the neural organization of social knowledge – how our brains make sense of the mental states and traits of other people. To study this topic, I use a broad range of methods including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), behavioral experiments, and innovative web techniques. You can read more about my research here or check out my curriculum vitae here. My blog features a variety of data science side-projects I work on in my spare time, as well as discussion of my research and psychology in general.
