I’m a PhD candidate working with Sam Gershman in the Psychology Department at Harvard University. I’m interested in understanding the inductive biases that drive human learning in naturalistically complex decision-making domains. In particular my work focuses on formally describing these inductive biases in video games using a variety of model-based reinforcement learning approaches. Ultimately I hope to use these techniques to better understand how these biases alternately facilitate or hinder human learning in real world training environments like the classroom.
