I'm a 5th year graduate student working with Larry Maloney and Todd Gureckis. My current research focuses on how we gather and exploit information in stochastic environments. Our “psycho decision-making” experiments combine psychophysics techniques with classic decision-making problems. This combination allows us to model and compare human performance to that of an ideal participant. By quantifying behavior in this way, we gain a better understanding of how humans integrate and use probabilistic information about the world.
This is a blog about the field of cognitive science and the study of thinking. Our goal is to figure out why people do the things that they do. The blog is published by the members of the Computation and Cognition Lab @ New York University (more...)
