👋 I’m John, a researcher in Harvard’s Department of Psychology and MIT’s Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines.

My interests are in computational cognition, particularly the social, common sense, and linguistic kind. I build upon on our understanding of cognitive science, particularly development, to develop models that mimic external human behavior with the goal of advancing our understanding of these kinds of cognition and the developmental mechanisms that give rise to these abilities.
