Her research focuses on human concept learning and reasoning, and on statistical methods in the behavioural sciences. Other topics she has researched include data visualisation, decision making, language and cultural evolution, cognitive development, and forensic psychology. In her work as a computational cognitive scientist, she uses a mix of experimental methods and computational modelling techniques to explore how the human mind works.

On occasions she has been known to masquerade as a statistician, data scientist, software developer and generative artist. She is prone to describing herself in the third person in biographies, but is willing to admit that it’s super weird.
