I'm studying human thinking and reasoning, by applying theoretical ideas as in logic and philosophy to psychological experiments. In particular, the followings are the working-on projects:

  • Fine-grained Analysis of Inference by External Representations
  • Role of Augmented Reality in Semantic Understanding
  • Epistemic Vocabulary (Propositional-Attitude Verb) Classification

Also I'm interested in relevant topics in history & philosophy of logic and cognitive science.
