Research

I am interested in the representation of abstract concepts: how we invent and utilize representations, and what such interactions can tell us about human cognition.  On the flip side, I am interested in applying what we know and learn about human cognition to the design of representations.  I explore this space through human-computer interaction and information visualization. More broadly I am interested in the cognitive, affective and cultural consequences of technology, exploring modern computing machines as the latest in a long lineage of tools that have helped to shape our species.
