How we see the world — its present, past, and possible futures — determines how we act in it. How do we then see and understand the world?

I am interested in the development, formation, and revision of complex and compositional belief structures such as attitudes, explanations, or theories. I am also interested in how these structures relate to our behavior and constrain our inferences.

To approach these topics, I combine computational cognitive modeling and empirical methods such as cognitive-behavioral experiments. I am advised by Prof. Laura Schulz and Prof. Joshua Tenenbaum.
