Research Interests

I am interested in using cognitive modeling within a unified theory of cognition such as Soar or ACTR to test theories of learning and to improve human-computer interaction. I have built several tools to make model building, protocol analysis, and statistical analysis easier. I am also interested in developing stochastic learning and optimization algorithms to model behavior and to improve other analyses.

What I've been up to, an incomplete narrative.

Projects include:

Teaching (in the last few years)

as well as bits of other modules.
