Research Overview

I'm interested in the relationship between learning and intrinsic curiosity, and how that relationship evolves throughout the lifespan. I'm also interested in how curiosity-driven semantic learning affects how we structurally process information. I am especially interested in how autistic people develop semantic obsessions, which are unique to this population, and how the obsessions affect their cognitive development.
