I am interested in multi-agent systems and probabilistic representations of beliefs (e.g., in graphical models). For example, I am interested in how optimal network configurations can be found to optimize network performance. Currently, I am investigating information cascades and the emergence of echo chambers through agent-based simulations. At the same time, I aim to develop a better understanding of how people deal with statistical dependencies in social learning. These findings might help to further improve current models of belief propagation.
Besides my PhD, I am working as a tutor in Research Methods and Statistics at the University of Edinburgh. Prior to joining UoE, I worked as a graduate reseracher in Dimitris Pinotsis’ Computational Neuroscience Lab at City - University of London where I used dynamic causal modelling to investigate drivers of resting state activity in the rat’s vibrissal somatosensory system. Prior to moving to London I worked as a research assistant in Henry Otgaar’s’ Lab based in Maastricht. The results of my work as RA can be found here.
