In my research, I study generalization: how our inference about the novel and unknown is guided by our evolved and encountered past. This entails studying and formalizing generalization and analogical learning in humans, and testing these ideas by using them to create better machine-learning algorithms. More broadly, I am interested in furthering our understanding of cognition and intelligence by uniting insights from high-level theories and ideologies of the brain, mind, and computation.
