I am a PhD student in the Psychology department. I am interested in how we extract knowledge about competence from limited and ambiguous data. My work focuses on developing an intuitive theory of competence which provides inductive biases that constrain our inferences regarding what we are capable of and could be capable of if we explored and learned in particular ways. My research approach combines behavioral experiments and computational models.
