Vlad grew up in a very small town in the woods of rural upstate New York and is probably a hipster. He got his B.S. in Psychology from Yale University in 2012, where he spent a lot of time doing campus radio and hopping around psychology and philosophy labs. He’s mostly vegan, and he’s broadly interested in moral conflict, moral conformity, and moral minorities. He mostly spends his time outside the lab really liking Durham and taking photos of his dog, Toad, who is great.
