… and how we do it
Some of the questions that guide our research:
In our research, we formalize people’s mental models as computational models that yield quantitative predictions about a wide range of situations. To test these predictions, we use a combination of large-scale online experiments, interactive experiments in the lab, and eye-tracking experiments.
We are growing! If you are a prospective PhD student looking to join the lab, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am interested in how people hold others responsible, how these judgments are grounded in causal representations of the world, and supported by counterfactual simulations. I also like to drink tea.Personal website
I did my undergraduate study in philosophy and my graduate study in computer science. I’m interested in work that integrates the methods and questions of these disciplines to understand the mind. I like to drink water.
I am a rising junior at Stanford University. I am interested in Computer Science, Math, and Cognitive Science - which I plan to pursue with a career as a Data Scientist. Outside of these interests, I also enjoy playing the piano, dancing, reading, and eating exorbitant amounts of sugar.
I am a PhD student studying cognitive neuroscience primarily in the Gardner lab. I am interested in sensory cue combination and how sensory reliability is represented in the brain.
