I study how economic decision making is influenced by cognitive constraints on information processing, and how biologically plausible organisms manage to behave adaptively.

My research is driven by my two greatest passions - the aesthetics of parsimonious models, and a strong desire to understand the different ways by which we perceive, reason, interact and create.

I employ a range of tools from statistical physics, dynamical systems, and "big-data" analysis on high-resolution measurements (psychophysics, fMRI, EEG, etc...) to reveal basic principles of complex cognitive phenomena.

I am broadly interested in the many ways in which what we already know affect the way we interact with the world. We rely on our previous knowledge to interpret what we see, which in turn is susceptible to biases emanating from our pre-dispositions. I am mostly interested in the neural mechanisms giving rise to such biased processing. My research spans various phenomena across cognitive and social domains, including episodic memory formation and consolidation, meta-cognition, impression formation, attitudes, conformity, and distinctive processing. ...

Postdoctoral research fellow
Psychology Department, Harvard University

I am interested in the balance between innate brain organization and experience-dependent plasticity. My primary research focuses on studying adults with specific sensory deprivation (blind, deaf or dysplasic, born without hands) to learn how selective sensory experiences shape their sensory, motor and cognitive systems. These models serve to assess the roles of critical developmental periods, compensatory cross-modal plasticity and sensory-independent (a-modal) processes in the human brain.
