Sydney Levine

Former Postdoctoral Associate

I am a postdoctoral scholar working jointly with Iyad Rahwan (Scalable Cooperation Group, MIT Media Lab), Joshua Tenenbaum (Computation Cognitive Science Group, MIT Brain and Cognitive Sciences), and Fiery Cushman (Moral Psychology Group, Harvard) on how moral learning works in adults, children, and machines.

I completed my PhD in the Rutgers University Department of Psychology and Center for Cognitive Science. My dissertation was supervised by Alan Leslie in the Cognitive Development Lab on the the topic of moral rules and representations.

I have also collaborated with John Mikhail (Georgetown Law), Stephen Stich (Rutgers, Philosophy), and Edouard Machery (University of Pittsburgh, History and Philosophy of Science).
