TED SUMERS COGNITIVE SCIENCE
I'm a fifth-year PhD student advised by Tom Griffiths at Princeton. I'm currently supported by a NDSEG fellowship.
My research develops computational models of human communication, with an emphasis on real-world consequences.
How will an utterance affect a listener's beliefs and actions?
How do people (and language models) weigh these outcomes?
I'm interested in answering these questions to further our understanding of humans and develop value-aligned LLMs.
