I'm a lecturer in computational cognitive science at the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics. Broadly, I am interested in semantics and concepts. My current research attempts to answer four questions:
1) How do we represent meaning?
2) How do children learn the meanings of words?
3) How do people understand sentences during online processing?
4) How does context interact with meaning?
I address these questions with computational modeling, behavioral experiments with adults and children and, every now and then, neuro-imaging methods (specifically fMRI).
