PhD student

I am a cognitive psychologist-turned-computer scientist. My research explores the potential for using insights from the behavioural neurosciences to design digital technology that is sensitive to human limitations and biases, particularly in relation to attention and self-regulation.

Aside from my DPhil research, I am passionate about open science and reforming the incentive structure in academia to reward replication studies, transparent reporting of methods and results, and sharing of materials. One of my pet peeves is how the obscure terminology used for standard statistical tests and concepts invites misunderstanding and errors.
