My research revolves around using computational models of intelligence to tell us more about human intelligence, and how our methods of perceiving and interacting with the world determine how we communicate about it. I use simulation and multimodal methods to research human language understanding, communication, and cognition in a computational context, and have applied these methods to questions in HCI/HRI, linguistics, spatial reasoning, and data exploration, among others.
