After completing bachelor's degrees in psychology and computer science at New York University, I received my PhD in psychology at Yale University. Currently I'm a Post-Doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany.
Broadly construed, I study social cognition, social perception, and human behavior. Currently I am working on three main questions:
How do we navigate deviancy and irregularities in our environments and how do such environments impact social decision making?
Do everyday people have natural insight into complex social psychological phenomena?
What are the processes and belief structures underlying extremism and fanaticism?
