We are the Affect, Cognition, and Computation Lab at the University of New Hampshire. Our lab is primarily interested in understanding how our thoughts arise and how they influence learning amongst various other aspects of our lives. We use a variety of techniques including eye-tracking and emotion inductions to build computational models incorporating how we think in predicting learning outcomes in real time. We aim to provide a foundation for ecological models of human cognition during learning.
