I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Psychology at UC San Diego, where I work in the Language and Development Lab, under the direction of Prof. David Barner.

I study the development of abstract concepts, with a recent focus on the domain of time. My research investigates the roles that language, perception, and culture play in the formation of time concepts in children. I’m also interested in word learning more broadly, including how kids learn names for numbers and colors.

Prior to coming to UCSD, I worked as a research scientist at New York University, studying visual perception, object recognition, and reading.
