    Dissertation Title: Social Theories of Reasoning


    I am working on a public-facing book that aims to show how an interdisciplinary understanding of human nature can be usefully applied in real world settings such as conflict resolution and deliberative democracy initiatives.


    My research focus is on cognition, rationality, and human origins. I have published on the nature of inference and my current work investigates cognitive biases and the evolution of human reasoning.
