Program area(s):   

Cognitive Science and Language Processing

Graduate advisor:   Prof. John Hummel, Psychology

Research:

I study semantic encoding for relational reasoning and analogical inference.

My work combines traditional natural language processing with some unconventional neural network modeling to produce a system that draws analogies between phrasal scenes to make predictions about the extensions of those scenes.

I focus predominantly on natural language processing/logical back-ends and their integration with other neurally inspired systems.
