Welcome to the lab!
We are interested in how people make decisions, assign degrees of confidence to these decisions, and build internal models of the world and of themselves.
Our current research focuses on the study of confidence and metacognition.
In our research we use a combination of approaches, including theoretical studies, computational modeling and behavioral experiments.
