David Kamper

I graduated from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience, philosophy, and cognitive science and a Bachelor of Music in trombone performance. I am broadly interested in legal decision making and cognition. More specifically, I am interested in how analogy is developed and used in the law, the cognition of intellectual property (categorical relations, novelty, reduction, art, creativity), corpus linguistics, and how social networks facilitate differences in how laws develop and are litigated. I also have a strong interest in causal judgments in law and their resulting consequences. I use behavioral experiments, computational cognitive modeling, and neuroscientific methods to understand these cognitive mechanisms.
