My research interests are in Cognitive Psychology. I am interested in memory, decision-making, attention, and categorization. My work is in developing quantitative models for cognition. More recently, I have also become interested in Bayesian statistics.
I develop and test mathematical models of cognition, including theories of short-term memory, how people make decisions, how people classify and categorize the world, and how people deploy their attention in complex tasks.

I am looking to supervise people in all areas of Cognitive Psychology. This includes human memory, decision-making, attention, categorization, and many other exciting areas.
If you want to do a PhD in Psychology, learn to write computer code, and become comfortable with data and statistics. These things turn out to really matter.
