Curriculum Vitae

I recently received my Ph.D. in experimental psychology from Harvard University, where I developed my research program on the psychology of common knowledge under my advisor, Steven Pinker. I am currently the Chief Scientist at MotiveMetrics, where we turn cutting-edge psychological science into software tools that can accurately reveal true motivations from publicly available data. In short, we help marketers understand why people buy—or don’t—at the click of a button. Software hasn’t eaten marketing research yet, but we’re working very hard to change that.
