I am currently investigating information cascades and the emergence of echo chambers through empirically informed agent-based simulations. A key focus of my PhD is to increase the cognitive sophistication of artificial agents to better account for the social- and cognitive determinants underlying the formation of echo chambers in lateral information systems (e.g., social media). I am also very interested in reinforcement learning and hypothesis generation, and I aim to combine this interest with my focus on multi-agent systems.
I previously worked as a graduate reseracher in Dimitris Pinotsis’ 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.
