Supervision Statement

  • I am interested in supervising students who have a mathematical/computational background - as a guideline, you should be able to program in at least one language, have taken some stats classes, and feel comfortable reading papers with equations in them. You should also be interested in higher-order cognition, particularly in the realm of concept change, categorisation, language acquisition, information transmission and cultural evolution, and decision making. If you're not sure you have the background -- or you would like to know what to study to get the relevant background -- please email me and ask!
