The short story: I spend (some of) my time thinking about cognition and language and computation. These days this is mostly in connection with my thesis, for which I have been building a computational model of how toddlers round the world go from zero to language (or more precisely, from single words to grammatical constructions). On whether this is fun/exciting/stimulating, or hard/frustrating/premature: definitely. It may even be possible.

Other things I think about:
