My current research investigates the patterns of interventional actions and attentional shifts which people perform, either explicitly or automatically, when attempting to learn the causal structure of a system. These data are assessed by rational analysis of the informational entropy of these actions, and by fitting cognitively plausible models. In this way I hope to get closer to uncovering the processes underlying how we are able to turn sensory information into causally structured representations. I am also interested in philosophy of mind and its relationship with contemporary findings in cognitive science and neuroscience.
