Judgment and Decision Making; Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Cognition
I study preferential choice using insights from psychology and economics. I am particularly interested in understanding how people learn, represent and retrieve information about the choice alternatives available to them, and how this information affects their final decisions. I also study the cognitive basis of intuitive judgment, again with a focus on understanding the mechanisms involved in representing relevant information in these types of judgments. My work uses mathematical and computational cognitive models, and tests the predictions of these models with behavioral experiments.
Professor Sudeep Bhatia will be considering new graduate students for admission for Fall 2017.
