Hi. I’m a dissertator at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the Department of Educational Psychology. I recieved an MS in educational psychology in 2013 for work studying children’s inductive inferences about non-representative samples. I received a BS in cognitive science from Indiana University Bloomington, where I worked on problems of computational semantics and cognitive modeling. Right now, I study how children and adults learn from examples: how and when they use how they learn to generalize what they learn to new situations. See my work for more.
