Personal profile

My research in a nutshell

My research investigates the intuitive processes that underlie scientific misconceptions, and aims to develop interventions to correct these misconceptions. I address these issues using a range of methods including behavioral studies with adults and children, data mining and machine learning techniques, surveys of experts, and Bayesian statistical modeling.

Knowledge exchange

My research has been covered by venues like the New York Times, the Atlantic, Time, BBC, and the Wall St. Journal.
