I am a computational cognitive scientist.
Currently, I am working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Developmental Computational Psychiatry lab at the University of Tübingen, where I develop scientific software to streamline and push computational modelling to the forefront of research. I am also a Guest Scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics.
My primary research focuses on computational modelling of human heterogeneity and behavioural complexity. I also develop new and innovative frameworks (https://psyarxiv.com/ygmcj) for large-scale relative model comparisons. In addition, I have done effect-centric research on when intelligent systems fail with a special focus on the inverse base-rate effect - an irrational effect of non-uniform generalization of learned experience.
To top it all, I work hard on open sourcing science! Transparency, openness, reproducibility and accessability are at the core of my work culture. I am involved in a variety of open-source science projects. I am the lead developer of psp, a senior developer of catlearn.
