I received my MS and BS in symbolic systems from Stanford University in 2009, and my Ph D in cognitive science from MIT in 2014. Glushko Prize for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation in Cognitive Science, I am an MIT Technology Review Innovator Under 35, and my research was selected by Scientific American as one of the most important advances of 2016.My research focuses on computational problems that are easier for people than they are for machines, such as learning new concepts, creating new concepts, learning-to-learn, and asking questions.Together, the models generated by these examinations provide new insight into how social behavior is ultimately grounded in learned social intelligence.Glushko Dissertation Prizes are awarded via a joint partnership between the Cognitive Science Society and the Glushko-Samuelson Foundation.Co-PI with collaborators Emily Coderre and Trevor Brothers. An ERP study of processing of visual narratives in school-aged children. University of Vermont REACH grant Visual narrative to study narrative comprehension abilities in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
