I am a student at Indiana University working on a PhD in Cognitive Science and Cognitive Psychology. I study semantic representation and behavior under the supervision of Dr. Michael N. Jones in his Cognitive Computing Lab.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, where I majored in Communication Studies and minored in everything else (business, English/creative writing, psychology, computer science). Fortunately, I have been able to continue my interest in everything else into my graduate school career.

We may not have semantic memory in the way
that theorists have typically conceived of semantic memory.
In place of the standard view, ... a person’s interpretation of the words they are reading is constructed on the fly, where ... our phenomenology of meaning is continuously constructed as the interaction between stimuli, episodic memory, and the memory retrieval mechanism that mediates them.
