Cognitive Scientist, Musician

Hi. I'm a research scientist, saxophonist and composer. Currently I’m a post-doc in the Data Science group at Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) in Seattle, WA.

I received a PhD in Cognitive Science from Indiana University in 2020, under the mentorship of Robert Goldstone and others. Here I conducted experiments and developed computational models to study how thinking occurs in individuals and interacting groups of people. My dissertation research was about modeling coordination patterns in collaboratively improvising musicians.
