How do people make decisions? My research addresses this question on the behavioral and neural levels using a wide range of tasks and stimuli. Psychological and economic studies have shown that humans (as well as other animals) often fail to make the most optimal choice. Instead, the context in which we make a decision can influence our choice. In the scope of my DPhil, I am aiming to uncover the mechanisms driving these context dependencies.
I have a strong interest in data science and using big data to garner insight for human behavior. I am also very happy to collaborate on interdisciplinary research. Feel free to get in touch!
