I'm a UC Berkeley Psychology PhD student in the Computational Cognitive Science Lab. My interests lie at the intersection of cognitive science and artificial intelligence, spanning topics like mental representations and crossmodal correspondences to music cognition and education. I'm advised by Stephen Palmer and Thomas Griffiths, and collaborate closely with Alyosha Efros and other members of the computer vision community. Below are a few representative publications.
