I am a researcher in cognitive science at the Institut Jean Nicod/Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, France. I study "core knowledge," i.e. forms of knowledge that are cross-culturally universal and often appear very early in infancy. In particular I look at how core knowledge of physical objects and the social world continues to influence our lives as adults through shaping linguistic and perceptual systems, often unconsciously. I also have research interests in the psychology of expertise and the sociology of science, trying to understand why experts are so often wrong. It's this latter topic that I will be blogging about most often through the Cognition and Culture website.→
