philosophy student and mother

I’m a PhD student at the University of Utah, and I study the intersection of philosophy, psychology, and economics, particularly incentives, motivation, rationality, uncertainty, and models.

I’m the mom of four children and I blog a few times a month on my life and the lessons I’m learning along the way.

I live in the mountains in a house my grandpa built with my husband, kids, two cats, two geese, one duck, and one turtle.
