Collaborating PhD Student
I am a rotation student at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, and am funded by the Max Planck School of Cognition. I attained a BSc in Psychology from the University of Würzburg, followed by a MSc from the School of Mind and Brain in Berlin. During my Master thesis I worked on neuronal circuits of vison at the Harvard Medical School in Richard Born’s lab. Currently I am working on a project about the complexity of human inference. In particular, I am looking at how people’s inference times scale as the complexity of a problem increases, and how structure learning can lead people’s inference to scale much better than current cognitive and machine learning algorithms.
