Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm a Ph.D. student in cognitive psychology in Tania Lombrozo's lab at Princeton University. I've also collaborated with Sami Yousif, Joshua Knobe, and Frank Keil.

I'm interested broadly in questions at the intersection of philosophy and psychology. For instance, I've been fascinated by the study of explanation: What makes something a good explanation or a satisfying one? Are these different questions? How should we understand people's ordinary explanation preferences, and how can this inform the theoretical conclusions we draw from them? So far, I've tried to address these questions by investigating the nature of people's teleological preferences.

Outside of the lab, you'll find me in philosophy seminars on anything from Kant to the philosophy of quantum mechanics, on Twitter, or trying to relive my days as a dancer.
