About Me

In July 2017, I'll be starting as an Assistant Professor in New York University's Department of Psychology.

Currently a sixth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, I graduated from Yale University in 2008 with a B.A. in Cognitive Science and Art. My research interests include the origins of uniquely human mathematical concepts, such as Euclidean geometry, as well as how innate mathematical skills might be recruited for school-based learning. Further interests lie in the universality of cognition through human development and history.

I'm affiliated with the Lab for Developmental Studies at Harvard and the Center for Brains, Minds & Machines at MIT.

I also teach Zumba™, STRONG by Zumba™, and Barre for Harvard Recreation and for Plus One. Click here for my Zumba website!
