My research examines the evolutionary origins of the human mind. How do different primates think about the world, are their psychological abilities are similar to (or different from) our own, and why does variation in cognition emerge across species? I received an AB in Psychology from Harvard, a PhD in Evolutionary Anthropology and Cognitive Neuroscience from Duke, and conducted postdoctoral research at Yale.

The Cayo Santiago Biological Field Station and the town of Punta Santiago were both devastated when Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. We are working with other scientists and supporters to organize aid and relief.
