Postdoctoral Scholar in Neuroeconomics

California Institute of Technology

I am a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech working with Antonio Rangel. I received my PhD from Stanford where I worked with Russell Poldrack. I study the neural correlates of decision-making, particularly decisions that involve self-regulation. My work has a strong emphasis on methodological rigor and reproducibility. To this end I investigate the psychometric properties of measures in the field and build statistical models for neuroimaging data that account for the brain’s network structure. I work with open-source tools and share my code and data.
