Broadly speaking, my research investigates the interaction between the representation of category knowledge and the use of that knowledge. I am especially interested in how people use existing knowledge to develop new ideas or products. Within the broad domain of category representation and use, I tend to focus on issues of alignability. Alignability is a theoretical construct describing the manner in which concepts are compared.

It would describe my research and break it down into several sections:

  • research interests
  • Analogy
  • Conformity Effect
  • Conceptual Expansion
  • Technology Use (eventually)
  • creative cognition lab
