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 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.
I am interested in understanding how seeing, thinking, and learning interact.
I am interested in visual learning and how visual information is used by, and sometimes limits thoughts and behaviors.
I am interested in the neural underpinnings of learning. Specifically, how large populations of neurons encode and process information to support learning and behavior in awake, behaving animals.
I am interested in developing designs and methods of analyses to evaluate treatments in medicine, public health and policy (causal inference).
