I am a Master's student of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. I studied music composition in college for number of years before ultimately pursuing my bachelor's in cognitive science. Consequently, I have worked in the field of computational creativity in addition to cognitive neuroscience, which is my current focus. My master's thesis, “The electrophysiology of cognitive dissonance-elicited attitude change” investigated the changes in neural activity in human participants during (and during the subsequent change in preferences following) a difficult decision-making task. My current research interests revolve around human decision-making: reasoning errors, cognitive biases, rationalization, and behavioural economics.
