Biography

I graduated with my B.S. in Psychology (minor in philosophy) from the University of California, Riverside in 2018. My interests in philosophy are closely related to my interests in cognitive psychology-- I'm broadly interested in the philosophy of science, epistemology, and formal logic.

Research Interests

I study semantic memory with behavioral experiments and computational models. Specifically, I'm interested in indicators (behavioral or neurological) that reflect our access of semantic memory (semantic priming, eye movements, ERPs), and the environment from which we learn our semantic memory. I'm also an advocate of using computational models to explore and theorize. There are a lot of intricacies involved in learning from our environment and using the information learned-- computational models make the intricacies more manageable.
