- Graduate Student
Advisor: Dr. Tim Pleskac
Research Lab: KU Behavioral Sciences Lab
I am a Psychology PhD student at the University of Kansas interested in examining how people rely on social information to decide whether to engage in health-protective behaviors; how graduate admissions committees incorporate verbal and numeric information in deciding who to admit; and how prior experiences influence an individual’s decision between risky and safe propositions of reward.
I am interested in how people incorporate information from their environment in making decisions. To answer these questions, I primarily utilize statistical modeling and big data analysis, including natural language processing, policy capture and lens modeling, geometric modeling, and classification models such as Random Forests.
