Hi. I'm a graduate student in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at Harvard University. Using functional neuroimaging and behavioral methods, I study egocentric inferential biases, self-centered communication, and the cognitive and neural mechanisms for escaping our subjective perspective.

This is my vita
