Research

My research interests are broad, but all relate to the issue of how people combine information in the course of learning, comprehension, and inference. This overarching interest has led to research on concepts, conceptual combination, memory, word meanings, analytic reading, and expository writing, as well as peripheral interests in spatial cognition, conceptual development, and consumer loyalty.
