General Research Interests: 

My lab’s research focuses on understanding information processing in human learning, decision making, and episodic memory, and how it is disrupted in psychiatric disorders (anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression) – an area recently dubbed computational psychiatry. In carrying out this work, we leverage tools from cognitive neuroscience, experimental and mathematical psychology, computer science, and statistics. We work at the intersection of theory and experiment, building computational models of information processing and testing them using both behavioral data and noninvasive neuroimaging (fMRI and EEG).
