Felix A Sosa
I am a cognitive scientist, broadly interested in understanding human cognition and how we can replicate it in machines. Currently, I am the Lab Manager for the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at Harvard. Starting Fall 2019, I will begin as a PhD student in the Psychology Dept at Harvard and the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines at MIT. My work will be funded by the Harvard Prize Fellowship.
I'm advised by Sam Gershman and Tomer Ullman. My current and previous work largely focuses on building computational models of learning and cognition. This includes developing a novel class of evolutionary algorithms, search processes for program induction, and modeling higher-level cognitive behaviors such as moral judgment and social learning.
