My research group works to identify neural mechanisms underlying cognition by developing and validating mathematical models. We have linked observed individual and collective behaviors to a diversity of constrained cognitive strategies, developing new mathematical and computational tools for solving, fitting, and identifying nonlinear and stochastic models of biological inference and its underlying neural activity representations.

Research Interests:

  • Mathematical neuroscience
  • Spatiotemporal pattern formation
  • Evidence accumulation, decision making, and Bayesian sequential analysis
  • Stochastic dynamics of collective behavior, especially foraging
