Sara Aronowitz is a philosopher and cognitive scientist working on learning, memory, and imagination. Her research focuses on ways in which learning requires not just acquiring facts, but grasping new structures in the world - and how these learning processes unfold over time. This involves investigating the way successful learners actually function, building models of optimal learning, and figuring out the relationship between the two. Aronowitz holds a B.A. from the University of Toronto in Philosophy and Slavic Studies, and a Ph.D from the University of Michigan in Philosophy.
