Research Intrests & Bio

Currently I am a junior in the cognitive science program. I anticipate receiving a BS in cognitive science and two minors in psychology and philosophy. While my research has been primarily in word-learning, I am also interested in memory models, philosophy of mind, and neurological diseases like schitzophrenia and its diverse effects on learning and memmory. I began doing research in Fall 2008 in the MAPLAB. My first paper (of hopefully many more!) is due in Winter 2009, dealing with cross-situational statistical word learning and categorization.
