Research Description

I'm working at the intersection of cognitive science and machine learning. I do research about the relationship between computational architectures (like neural nets) and conceptual models of cognition (e.g., neural network models of cognition). I'm also interested guiding and promoting the use of machine learning, data visualization tools and software engineering techniques in the social sciences.
