I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, where I direct the Cognitive Evolution Group. My research probes the evolutionary origins of the human mind by examining cognition and behavior in other primates.

I received an AB in Psychology from Harvard University in 2005 with a certificate in Mind, Brain, and Behavior, and a PhD in Evolutionary Anthropology with a focus in cognitive neuroscience from Duke University in 2012. I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at Yale University from 2013-15.
