I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology as part of the Social Behavioral Science Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses on the evolutionary and cultural origins of human social cognition and behavior, and in particular, on the decision-making processes underlying our propensity to cooperate with one another. Much of my work is conducted among the Hadza of Tanzania, one of the last remaining foraging populations.

I received my PhD in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania under the direction of Dr. Coren Apicella in the Human Behavior and Origins Lab.
