„In brief, we have two major lines of study: The first is substantive: we study how people process and combine new perceptual information with pre-existing knowledge such that they can reach these quick, effortless decisions about the world around them. This research is in the areas of memory, attention, perception, categorization, and letter recognition. The second is methodological: we develop nonlinear hierarchical models for improved estimation and inference, and ultimately better theory development, across a number of domains.“
