Julian De Freitas

Hello. I'm a cognitive scientist in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, studying social intelligence. My work is divided into three units:

(i) empirical philosophy

(ii) game theory

(iii) neural networks & psychophysics


Combining them, I get to make progress on exciting questions such as:

  • What do we think defines who we are, and why? 

  • How and why do we manage to coordinate in social life?

  • How do we manage to rapidly extract social meaning from our environments?

  • How do we learn to pay attention to and track animate agents? 

  • How do we make moral judgments?
