Main Focus

I develop and apply computational models of learning and decision making. The main focus of my research is on experience-driven learning in uncertain environments that require sophisticated information processing. I use behavioral and neuroimaging experiments to study the neural and cognitive processes underlying these learning abilities in humans. 

Current projects include

  • The interplay of perceptual and reward uncertainty during learning
  • Learning under threat and anxiety
  • Natural forgetting in mice from an adaptive learning perspective
