Psychology (2019 cohort)

I am a DPhil (PhD) candidate supervised by Prof. Nick Yeung and Dr. Dan Bang. My DPhil is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as well as St. John's College. My research is focused on computational approaches to metacognition, evidence integration and processing, and decision-making in a social context. I explore human confidence by measuring behaviour (such as response times and confidence judgements) and recording brain activity using electroencephalography (EEG) during simple perceptual decision tasks.

Prior to my studies at Oxford, I acquired an MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences at UCL, an MPhil in Management at the University of Cambridge, and a BSc in Psychology at the University of Mannheim.
