About

I am a doctoral candidate at the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine. Previously, I completed my master’s in Logic, Computation, and Methodology at Carnegie Mellon University.

I think about how to make science better (esp. in regards to the impact of incentives and statistical methods for proposed interventions in the replication crisis), and about mathematical theories of rational belief and decision making (esp. of the social and Bayesian varieties), and of about cultural & biological evolution (esp. their implications for perception and moral cognition).

More broadly, I do research on topics in philosophy of science (esp. the social and biological sciences), game & decision theory, and (formal, social) epistemology.

In the past, I have been an information architect consulting for the National Science Foundation, UX strategist for Fortune 100 companies, new media technology instructor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco.

My Erdös number is 3. (By way of Brian Skyrms to Perci Diaconis to Erdös.)
