Graduate student in the MIT Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. Works in the Computational Cognitive Science Lab with Josh Tenenbaum. Interested in models of language and conceptual representation and development. Writes for the Harvard University Social Science Statistics Blog. Interested in applying Bayesian models to aspects of cognitive development, in particular to issues of learnability. What biases must children have in order to acquire knowledge in different domains (syntax, word and feature learning, understanding of kinds)? To what extent are these biases domain-general?
