I got my first degree as a musician (jazz guitar) and returned to school a couple of years ago as a psychology major. As of now I am a graduate student. I have a strong interest in methodology and statistics.

In my bachelor thesis I compared the Variability Effect from Cognitive Load Theory with the phenomenon of Interleaved Learning from a connectionist point of view. Currently I am trying to build on this work. I am working on a proposal of how hierarchically structured learning material can be analysed to make predictions about the order in which the underlying concepts might be distinguished from another.
