About Me (Bio):
Kreshnik Begolli is a 4th year PhD. Student in the Department of Education at the University of California, Irvine. He is primarily interested in how cognitive science research can help make improvements in education. Kreshnik studies paradigms in analogical reasoning, language acquisition, and perceptual learning in an effort to better understand the way we abstract complex patterns from our environment and reason inductively. As a complement to this line of research, Kreshnik is also interested in uncovering and developing optimal learning schedules in the hopes of creating learning environments that are adaptive to each learner's style. This inquiry led him to pursue his B.S. degree in Cognitive Science at UCLA, where he graduated with Departmental and Collegial Honors, A Specialization in Computing, and a Minor in Linguistics.
