Research Statement

My research interests are at the intersection of the cognitive neuroscience, theoretical neuroscience and machine learning.

I am focused on understanding the computational and neurophysiological mechanisms that underlie human decision making.

I use various concepts from the information and probability theory to model human adaptive behaviour and test specific

experimental predictions derived from the computational models.
