My research is focused on understanding generalization through characterization of abstraction and representation of newly acquired knowledge. We wish to utilize computational tools from the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to quantify generalization and uncover its neural underpinnings and the mechanisms that govern it. Moreover, we aim to manipulate these processes to test if we can affect them with behavioral change paradigms to improve learning.
