Research Interests: My research takes a brain centered approach to characterizing social effects on decision making. I apply machine learning techniques to the analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging data acquired from individuals playing a game with a social component. Through my work, I seek to understand social processes in both healthy individuals and in individuals with mental disorders, like autism and addiction.
