Hi! My name is Danielle, and I recently earned my Ph.D. in the department of philosophy at UC Davis in California. My research is primarily focused on the philosophy of science. Specifically cognitive science, neuroscience, and computation. I am currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Modeling Interdisciplinary Inquiry at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU).
I am a first-generation university student and the first ever in my family to earn a bachelor's degree from a four year college (which means I'm also the first to earn a master's and doctoral degree). My educational journey has taken me through every stage of the California college system. I earned an AA and AS at Sacramento City College, a BA at California State University, Sacramento, and then a Ph.D. at the University of California, Davis.
