Research Interests

Dr. Kibbe’s research focuses on how infants, children, and adults represent information about objects (e.g. perceptual features, animacy, group statistics, numerosity, verbal labels).  Dr. Kibbe’s lab also looks at the kinds of computations we can do with these representations, the ways in which we use these representations to guide behavior, and how cognitive systems (such as working memory, attention, social cognition, and decision-making) interact during complex tasks.  This research relies on both behavioral methods and computational modeling of cognitive processes.
