Research Interests:

Broadly, my research concerns the mechanisms supporting decision-making, memory and learning with a focus on how flexible control mechanisms guide behaviour. I seek to identify these mechanisms using cleverly crafted experimental designs, computational modelling, pharmacological manipulations, neuroimaging, and advanced statistical analysis of empirical data. My vision is that a better understanding of these processes will allow us to develop interventions promoting their effective usage. 

Current interests include:

  • Model Based and Model Free Reinforcement Learning
  • Credit Assignment
  • The Functions of Cognitive Maps
  • Sequential Sampling Models of Evidence Accumulation
  • Exploration-Exploitation Dilemma
  • Learning from Misinformation
