My main research area is the role of causation in perception, learning and reasoning. I am mostly interested in the relationship between perceptual judgements of causation and judgements of time. What happens when assumed causes take place after their effects? Can the causal interpretation of the environment distort the order in which events are represented in the mind?
I am also interested in the way people generate and evaluate explanations and, in particular, the role of abstraction in everyday explanations.
