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.
