I am a postdoctoral researcher with Tom Griffiths at the University of California Berkeley's Social Science Matrix, and a visiting postdoctoral scholar at the Data & Society Research Institute in New York City. Formerly, I was a PhD student at MIT co-advised by Sandy Pentland and Josh Tenenbaum in EECS, CSAIL, the Media Lab, and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences.

I study computational social science and collective intelligence, often from the perspective of cognitive science.

The problems I am most keen on thinking about at the moment are: (1) the sociology of knowledge, (2) institutions, (3) value distribution, (4) political theory, (5) distributed inference.
