Human learning and decision-making
My work is concerned with understanding how humans learn and make decisions. We study learning in adults using computer-based tasks. We are interested in how humans acquire new concepts or patterns in data, and how they use this information to make decisions in novel settings. We simulate learning processes using computational models, including deep neural nettworks, that are tasked with similar challenges. We study the brains of humans during learning and decision-making using noninvasive methods such as fMRI and EEG.
