J. Isaiah Harbison (Ph. D., University of Louisville, 2005). The focus of my research is the development of cognitive-process models of judgment and decision making. My current projects concern the role of long-term memory and working memory in hypothesis generation and judgment. Empirically these projects include research on memory retrieval, hypothesis generation, belief adjustment, and probability judgment. Computationally, I am collaborating on the further development of the HyGene model, testing models of memory retrieval on data from memory tasks more naturalistic than the
standard paradigms, and developing a cognitive model of belief adjustment that can account for judgment behavior in both normal and abnormal populations.

My research also includes work in statistical or probability learning, the development of semantic representations, comprehension, and
categorization.
