The Causality in Cognition Lab at Stanford University studies the role of causality in our understanding of the world, and of each other.
We’ll be starting our work in the fall of 2018.
… and how we do it
Some of the questions that guide our research:
In our research, we formalize people’s mental models as computational models that yield quantitative predictions about a wide range of situations. To test these predictions, we use a combination of large-scale online experiments, interactive experiments in the lab, and eye-tracking experiments.
… more coming soon :)
I am interested in how people hold others responsible, how these judgments are grounded in causal representations of the world, and supported by counterfactual simulations. I also like to drink tea.Personal website
