Jordan T. Thevenow-Harrison is a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the Department of Educational Psychology. He received a B.S. in cognitive science from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN., where he worked on problems of computational semantics and cognitive modeling. His research interests include quantitative cognitive models of development and alternative methods of education and their influence on cognitive processes. His current work involves how factors such as trustworthiness—or the perceived representativeness of a sampling mechanism—influences children's descriptions of those samples and their inferences about the populations they are drawn from. He is also interested in how the processes involved in magical thinking influence inference behavior and scientific thinking.
