Key research questions
How do we develop knowledge through experience and learning?
How do our knowledge representations influence how we perceive and interpret new information?
How do our interpretations and perceptions influence our behaviour?
What does our behaviour tells us about our knowledge?
Specific research interests include: using computational models of response time to characterize rule-based decision making in categorization, differentiating categorization models, relating categorization to other processes such as discrimination and recognition memory, examining how basic categorization processes scale up to other decision making tasks
