Most of his research is in foundations of physics, in particular the foundations of quantum mechanics, and the physics of biological systems. He is also interested in research in physics education.
How do we learn to communicate using language? I study children's language learning and how it interacts with their developing understanding of the social world. I use behavioral experiments, computational tools, and novel measurement methods like large-scale web-based studies, eye-tracking, and head-mounted cameras.
