Filip Gesiarz: PhD Student

I am currently a first year PhD student at the Department of Experimental Psychology, supervised by Dr Tali Sharot and Professor Peter Dayan. Before joining the Affective Brain Lab, I worked with Dr Molly Crockett at the University of Oxford and Dr Tobias Donner at the University of Amsterdam. In my research I want to answer the question of how neural mechanisms underlying biases in decision-making and information-seeking contribute to human well-being. I will be investigating these problems primarily using reinforcement learning and hierarchical Bayesian approaches in combination with model-based fMRI.
