Julian De Freitas

Hello. I'm a cognitive scientist in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University who conducts research in visual cognition and social relations. I study the (probably) uniquely-human cognitive abilities that make social intelligence possible, including the self, morality, common knowledge, recursion, and more. 


I mostly conduct behavioral psychology experiments involving judgment and decision-making or psychophysics, while drawing on insights from philosophy, game theory, or evolutionary biology. Otherwise, I also try to engineer social intelligence from the ground up, using connectionist models.
