The Science of Learning Institute includes a broad network of scientists, practitioners, and educators with expertise spanning basic and applied sciences.
I am interested in the human capacity for identifying, categorizing, evaluating, and interacting with objects. I aim to understand the neural algorithms that make object vision possible.
I am interested in the neural basis of higher cognitive function. Specifically, I focus on working memory, attention, and cognitive control.
I am interested in mechanics and multisensory control in animals and machines.
I am interested in the neural substrates of learning and behavior using neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direct current stimulation.
My research explores the origins of human development, the interface between individual differences in development and physiology, and the implications of the prenatal period for postnatal life.
I am interested in both the development of new magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) methods and the application of existing methods to investigate the brain.
I am interested in the factors that determine the focus of visual attention, visual capture and attentional selectivity.
I am interested in natural language processing and how we can appropriately formalize linguistic structure and discover it automatically.
I am interested in the use of neurophysiological techniques to study neurological conditions that affect children and adults.
I am interested in how infants and children perceive, learn and reason about the world around them. Specific domains include numerical cognition, object-based attention, and short-term memory in infants and young children.
