I am broadly interested in the successes and failures of natural and artificial intelligence. My current research mainly focuses on metacognition and information search. In other words: I try to understand how agents become confident in their decisions, and how they should (and do) use this confidence to decide whether they need to collect more information. I am interested in both the basic computations underlying these processes as well as how they relate to real-world beliefs and behaviour, for example in mental disorders or polarisation.
Before my PhD, I obtained an MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences from University College London where I worked with Steve Fleming. Prior to that, I did a BSc in Psychology at TU Dresden where I worked in the lifespan developmental neuroscience lab of Shu-Chen Li.
