My research focusses on the mechanisms that allow people to process information and decide on the optimal course of action. To this aim, I mainly use a combination of mathematical modeling and (neuro-)psychological experimentation. Specific research questions that I currently work on include: "What is the cognitive and neural architecture of decision making under time pressure?”, "How can we identify mixtures of cognitive processes in behavioral and neural data?", and "How can fundamental decision-making processes be applied to study higher-order cognitive processes?".
