About

I’m a PhD Candidate in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego. I love metaphor, psychology, and science communication. I also love reading, writing, and crafting.

Updates: Some exciting things on the horizon

CogSci 2017: The annual Cognitive Science Society meeting will take place from July 26-29 in London. I’ll present two posters with recent research, and will oversee a new event that I’ve organized as the society’s graduate student representative — Professional Development Chats, for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to network and discuss specific professional development topics with professionals who are farther along in their careers.

Research Methods in Cognitive Science: This summer I’ll teach my first course as Instructor of Record. I’m excited to explore topics like the scientific process, experiment design, and ethics in science with the students.

Recent

I co-taught a Freshman Seminar at UCSD on Cognitive Science Blogging. We explored strategies for science communication, and students focused on iterating and honing their own blog posts. Check them out on our class blog.

ComSciCon 2017: I worked as the Program Organizing Committee chair for this year’s conference, held in June in Cambridge, MA. ComSciCon is a workshop organized by grad students for graduate students to foster science communication leadership. I’m proud of the program our team put together.

  1. What a great core for a blog: a forum for thinking about thinking. I recently started a blog about perception (www.theunpackagedeye.com) and am thrilled to come across yours.
