My research work revolves around causal learning and reasoning. I am interested in the way people learn about causal relationships from visual input and the way they use that knowledge to reason and explain. I have also studied the relationship between causal and temporal order, and, particularly, the conditions that lead people to override their perception of temporal order based on causal assumptions. Finally, I am interested in the way people detect and evaluate coincidences.
I am teaching computer programming to undergraduate students in psychology and postgraduate students in multiple master courses. I am also teaching a number of lectures on the philosophy of cognitive science as well as knowledge and representation at the MSc Cognitive and Decision Sciences.
