Research Interests:
I am driven by two great passions – the aesthetics of parsimonious models, and a strong desire to understand the different ways by which we perceive, reason, interact, and create.

In our work, we employ a range of tools from statistical physics, dynamical systems, functional data analysis, and "big-data" analysis on high-resolution measurements to reveal basic principles of complex cognitive phenomena.

I'm also highly passionate about education, and I hope to contribute to improving the impact of classroom and online courses on students.

Research Interests:

I am interested in understanding the capabilities of unconscious processes, and in using this knowledge to gain insights into the functions of consciousness. Relatively longstanding projects in the lab include the investigation of (non-conscious) working memory and executive functions, (non-conscious) goal pursuit and motivation, (non-conscious) goal conflict and self control, and (non-conscious) nationalism. Newer projects include (non-conscious) arithmetic and reading, the study of emotional and motivational factors that determine when things pop into consciousness, and application of various of the above-mentioned projects to the area of judgment and decision making. In recent years I have also examined various aspects of emotional processes, ranging from emotion perception, to emotion regulation and phenomenology. The lab mainly uses behavioral measures, but from time to time we resort to physiological data, patient data, and even colorful (and less colorful) pictures of the brain. In one fMRI study, run by a former graduate student in the lab, we even found significant activations outside the skull.
