I work on learning, inference and decision-making - across a wide range of domains (from sensory, to sensori-motor to more high-level cognitive domains). I use a wide range of different methods from behavioural experiments to fMRI and EEG. More often than not, my work involves computational modelling.
I teach first year stats (PS1007) and I supervise some great MSc students. I'm happy to hear from students who are interested in related MSc projects and/or pursuing a PhD.
