About Me

I am a cognitive neuroscientist interested in understanding how beliefs about the world and our motivation to explore it, emerge from the ways in which we learn. 

I am funded by a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellowship and carry out my research at the University of Oxford in the UK and Princeton University in the USA. Using a mixture of interactive online games, computational modelling, neuroimaging, behavioural experiments, field studies, survey data and economic theory, I try to understand the decisions we make and the underlying neurobiology that gives rise to them. 

I tutor undergraduates on information processing and mental wellbeing and frequently guest lecture in neuroeconomics at University College London (UCL). I am a former UCL IMPACT scholar in Experimental Psychology at the Affective Brain Lab and have written about my research for Aeon MagazineThe Conversation and NBC among others (see here for publications).
