My research is organized around three areas: psychology of memory, neural networks, and statistics. The psychology of memory research is mainly directed toward the modeling of long term semantic memory (e.g., scripts, schema, concepts) and memory for faces. The neural networks research is directed at finding a generalization of auto-associative networks and to the analysis of the statistical properties of connectionist models. My work with statistics is oriented towards two domains: analysis of variance (experimental design) and analysis of qualitative data (correspondence analysis, additive tree analysis).
