I began in the Kishida lab as a research lab technician managing admistratiative duties, assisting others in the lab, and creating/maintaining this website! My research experience over the past two years has focused on model and task design, data collection, and analysis of human behavioral data in the context of a reinforcement learning, with additional research analyzing behavioral data in an alcohol use disorder population. I am currently a first year PhD student developing a novel computational model that might explain how feature-level uncertainty influences various learning phenomenon, and investigating how it might be encoded via tonic and phasic neurotransmitter levels such as dopamine and serotonin.
