My research aims to advance our understanding of cognitive and adaptive systems by examining how theories, models, and organisms cope with extended uncertainty conditions. This research cuts across disciplinary divisions to investigate fundamental questions in the study of rationality, decision science, linguistic theory, economic theory, and evolutionary and adaptive systems. I use of machine learning techniques, statistical modeling, and laboratory and online experiments with human participants to explore these issues.

My lab, the Extended Uncertainty in Cognitive and Adaptive Systems (EUCAS) lab, has a webpage detailing additional information about my research, publications, and news.

Before joining Tilburg University in November 2016, I was a Research Scientist (2005-2016) at the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Development. Prior to that I was an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2004-2005) at the Center for Language Evolution, The University of Edinburgh. I also studied at the University of Edinburgh, where I obtained a BSc. (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science (1996), an MSc. in Cognitive Science (1997), and a Ph.D. (2003) in Cognitive Science. Before starting my Ph.D. in 1999 I held a Research Scientist position at SHARP Laboratories of Europe, Oxford.
