I specialize in Cognitive Science, particularly the following.
- meta-effectiveness (abilities and propensities to use knowledge to become more effective) and cognitive productivity,
- productive practice (deliberate practice, test-enhanced learning with technology),
- cognitive induction of sleep (e.g., serial diverse imagining, super-somnolent mentation),
- affective dimensions of attention (quelling perturbance [tertiary emotions] and other mental distractions),
- affective cognitive science (processing of goals and other motivators; autonomous agent architectures, including design-based AI).
I am Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Education.
Please visit the Cognitive Productivity Research Project page for more information.
The new framework for this research is described in my new book, Cognitive Productivity: The Art and Science of Using Knowledge to Become Profoundly Effective .
I am bilingual (French /English).
