Kirsty’s research models the many ways in which humans interact with information and how this can change as a result of context. She is working towards providing unified mathematical and computational models of contextuality, which often results in apparently complex and unpredictable human behaviour.
Kirsty received an ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship for a discovery project investigating this problem. She has collaborated on projects with people from a wide range of fields, including physics, experimental psychology, cognitive science, computer science, social psychology, education and computational linguistics.
Simon’s broad background in educational research has led him to focus on how people think about knowledge, and take action on that knowledge. In particular, he is engaged with the way people and policies implicate views on ‘knowledge’ in documents such as assessment policies. Simon's teaching now focuses particularly on quantitative literacy and teaching students to spot where statistical information has been used well, poorly, or omitted in error.
