Dejan Draschkow


Associate Professor

Dejan is an Associate Professor at the Department of Experimental Psychology, a Tutorial Fellow at Brasenose College, and affiliated with the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN).

Dejan leads the Adaptive Behaviour & Cognition Lab. The lab's research programme focuses on understanding how cognition unfolds during ecologically valid and naturalistic behaviour in real-world contexts. In particular, they are interested in how memories of different timescales form during natural tasks and, in turn, how these memories ultimately guide a wide variety of behaviours. The group further studies how we select and prioritise information within memory in service of ongoing behaviour.

An important part of advancing this research has been the development and utilisation of methods necessary to measure cognitive processes during unconstrained behaviour. This work has covered topics such as open and reproducible research practices, Virtual Reality, permutation tests in MEG/EEG data, online behavioural experiments, and mixed-effects/multilevel models.

Dejan teaches Core Practicals and R Hackathons for undergraduate students and Statistical Methods & Theory for graduates. For his work, he was awarded the Early Career Excellent Teacher Award under the Medical Science's Division's 2021 Teaching Excellence Awards scheme.
