BA in Cognitive Science and Linguistics, University of Pennsylvania

I am interested in the mechanisms underlying several broad areas of cognition, including reasoning and executive control. I am also interested in experimental approaches to solving questions in theoretical linguistics, stemming from my research as an undergraduate in which I investigated the processing of pronouns in natural language. In the future, I would like to connect insights from topics in cognitive science to real-world applications in public policy.
