Research Interests

My research uses computational and experimental techniques to investigate how children and adults construct rich conceptual systems that support everyday cognition and how these conceptual systems interface with language. A second strand of my research uses experimental methods and information theoretic models of language-processing to investigate how we actively build representations of context and how these contexts influence semantic and pragmatic computations.
