Hi, my name is Dawei Bai.

I am a postdoc at Yale University working with Brian Scholl.

I study the perception of intuitive physics and social agency, as well as the intersection of the two.

(Next to me is Albert Michotte's original apparatus for his pioneering studies on causality. Leuven, Belgium.)
