Research Summary

I explore how humans trade off risk and reward, and how such trade-offs might differ across the many domains in which we make decisions.

More broadly, I'm interested in the cognitive mechanisms and the neural structures that support our decision-making abilities - whether they are part of choice itself or support it (e.g., sensing, judgment, reasoning, learning).

I am also interested in what makes a good choice (optimality/ rationality) and how closely people approximate optimal strategies.

To explore these topics, I use psychophysics and other behavioural methods, computational modelling, eye-tracking and neuroimaging.
