Research

My research interests are broad, but all relate to the issue of how people combine information in the course of learning, comprehension, and inference. This overarching interest has led to research on psychology and philosophy of concepts, conceptual combination, memory, psycholinguistics of compound word processing, mathematical modelling and statistics, analytic reading, and expository writing.
