Research

research overview

  • Dr. Jones develops mathematical models of human learning, memory, and decision making. These models are informed by behavioral data collected in his lab. His primary interest is in how knowledge representation affects the efficiency of learning and, conversely, how learning feeds back to drive development of new representations (e.g., concept acquisition).
