Our lab's research addresses questions at the intersection of cognitive science, computational neuroscience, and AI. As a central case study, our recent investigations focus on human visual communication, which encompasses behaviors ranging from informal sketching to formal scientific visualization and its applications in education, user interface design, and assistive technologies. Our goal in building computational models of such behaviors is to understand how perception, memory, motor planning, and social cognition functionally interact in the brain, leading to a more unified understanding of how multiple cognitive systems are coordinated during complex, natural behaviors.
