Research interests

I focus on understanding and predicting decisions using quantitative modeling and advanced statistics / machine learning. My models of decision-making rely on insights from many fields: Neuroscience, Cognitive and Mathematical Psychology, Genomics, Economics and Computer Science.

  • Econometrics / Machine Learning
    • Neural Networks
    • Bayesian Methods and Computational Statistics
    • Big Data and High Performance Computing (HPC)
  • Quantitative Marketing
    • Demand analysis
    • Quantitative Behavioral Modelization and Decision Processes
    • Consumer Neuroscience and Consumer Genomics
  • Behavioral Neuro-Genomics
