While attending Colby College and under the guidance of Randy Jones I did some work in human cognition on a system named Cascade.

This work began in 2000-2001 when I did an independent study which is described here. Subsequently, in 2001-2002 I completed a senior scholars project. The abstract can be found here. As a result of these two years of work with Randy we published the following works & gave the following presentations.
