My overarching goal is to investigate human cognition in a naturalistic environment using computational models. I use naturalistic stimuli in my studies because they contain rich and dynamic information, similar to what we receive in the real world. I hope that my research findings can be generalized to real world situations.

Currently, I am studying the decision making in spatial navigation, co-advised by Dr. Arne Ekstrom and Dr. Robert Wilson.

Research Interests:

  • Modeling the decision making in virtual navigation.

Courses Taught:

  • Psychological Measurement and Statistics (Guest Lecturer on ANOVA)
  • Drugs and the Brain (Guest Lecturer on Psychedelics)
