As a cognitive neuroscientist, I investigate how the brain transforms sensory information into useful decisions, and how such decisions change with experience. In my research, I combine psychophysics and computational modeling of behavioural data with electrophysiological recordings in humans and rodents. I am passionate about open science and reproducibility, and I have a penchant for pondering philosophy.
In my doctoral research in the lab of Tobias Donner at the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf and University of Amsterdam, I investigated how our previous choices bias the way we interpret later information, and how this process is affected by the confidence in our decisions. I did a postdoctoral fellowship in Anne Churchland’s lab at Cold Spring Harbor, as part of the International Brain Laboratory consortium.
Robin is a PhD student with Kobe Desender at KU Leuven, co-supervised by Anne. He studies the interplay between confidence and sequential effects in decision-making using behavioral modeling and EEG.
