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 how language and other cognitive functions recover after stroke. My work specifically examines treatments for disorders such as aphasia and hemispatial neglect
I am interested in the effects of environment, and particularly poverty and parenting, on voluntary forms of self-regulation (e.g., executive functions) and the involuntary activity of neurophysiological systems that support self-regulatory abilities.
I am interested in the regulation of neurotransmitter receptors and brain function in health and disease.
The goal of my laboratory is to understand how neural circuits learn to produce responses to environmental cues that increase the fitness of the animal, and how disruption of this process contributes to cognitive disease.
I am interested in behavioral and neural mechanisms of associative learning.
I am interested in statistical modeling and computer vision.
I am interested in the environmental factors that impact children’s lives.
I am interested in understanding how social experiences (e.g., poverty, family relationships, neighborhood characteristics, life events) shape the biology of child development.
I am interested in fiber optic devices and biophotonics for applications in medicine and sensing.
I am interested in the application of information theoretic methods to human language technologies such as automatic speech recognition, machine translation and natural language processing.
