Jessica Hamrick

I am a PhD student at UC Berkeley in Tom Griffiths’ Computational Cognitive Science Lab. Previously, I researched intuitive physics in Josh Tenenbaum’s Computational Cognitive Science Group at MIT.

My research focuses on understanding mental simulation from a computational perspective. For details, please see my publications.

Additionally, I am a strong advocate for open source, open access, and open data in science. When I have time, I help out with the occasional Software Carpentry workshop, and contribute to a number of open source projects.
