I am a fellow at the Santa Fe Institute, conducting independent research. My work uses mathematical tools to understand complex phenomena in collective human behavior, such as collective decision-making and the polarization of political parties. My approach combines mechanistic models built from psychological first principles and learning from real-world data. I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics from Northwestern University in 2018. Outside of academics, I enjoy dance and Aikido.
