Dr Emmanuel Pothos studied physics at Imperial College, during which time he obtained the Stanley Raimes Memorial Prize in mathematics, and continued with a doctorate in experimental psychology at the University of Oxford.

He has worked with a range of computational frameworks for cognitive modelling, including ones based on information theory, flexible representation spaces, Bayesian methods and, more recently, quantum theory.

He has authored approximately 60 journal articles on related topics, as well as on applications of cognitive methods to health and clinical psychology.

- Learning processes
- Attentional biases in clinical and health psychology

Areas of PhD supervision

- Computational and mathematical modeling in cognition
