We welcome three new members to the CatLab this summer:
Greg Cox received his PhD from Indiana University in Psychological and Brain Sciences and Cognitive Science, where he worked with Rich Shiffrin. Greg completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Syracuse University and will be joining our lab as a postdoctoral fellow in July. He will be working with Palmeri, Logan, and Schall on model-based cognitive neuroscience. Greg is interested in the development of experimental techniques and mathematical/computational models that help us understand how neural and cognitive processes jointly unfold across time.
Craig Sanders is receiving his PhD from Indiana University in Psychological and Brain Sciences this summer, where he has been working with Rob Nosofsky. Craig will be joining our lab as a postdoctoral fellow next month. He will be working with Palmeri and Gauthier on project using cognitive and deep learning models to understand individual differences in visual cognition. Craig is broadly interested in combining machine learning (especially deep learning) with classic cognitive models to understand how people perceive, categorize, and mentally represent objects.
Jason Chow completed his undergraduate degree in May 2018 at the University of Toronto, he worked with CatLab alumnus, and now University of Toronto faculty member, Michael Mack on the development and validation of a printable 3D stimulus set for categorization experiments in visual and tactile modalities. As a PhD student at Vanderbilt, Jason will be working with Palmeri and Gauthier on combining computational modeling and neuroimaging to gain insights on perceptual expertise.
