I am interested – both experimentally and theoretically – in the following areas: origins of human cognition (with associated developmental and comparative psychology methodologies), problem solving & executive functioning, conscious vs unconscious processes, embodied cognition, normativity, game theory, cooperation and competition, and the philosophy of mind. I am also interested in cognitive interventions for improving cognitive function, particularly relating to fluid intelligence and working memory, and building resilience for performance.
