Research Themes

Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience

Systems and Computational Neuroscience

Interests

I study decision making, learning, and memory with computational models and behavioral experiments. I am interested in finding the normative way to solve a computational problem, how human performance conforms to or deviates from it, and what constraints explain the difference.
