My research integrates the cognitive processes of learning and decision making mechanisms in humans. Ongoing projects include behavioral and neural correlates of statistical learning, perceptual and value-based decision making. A wide range of experimental and analytic techniques such as psychophysics, eye tracking, brain imaging methodologies (EEG, fMRI) and computational modelling (Reinforcement learning, Bayesian approaches) are used. With machine learning approaches applied to structural MRI images, I am working on early detection of Alzheimer’s’ disease.
