I was until recently a post-dotoral researcher at Gatsby working with Prof. Peter Dayan on a number of problems in learning and decision making, but have since Aug. 2011 been a Lecturer (equiv. to Asist. Prof.) at the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics at University of Birmingham.

I used to organize the Gatsby Theoretical Neuroscience Journal club.

I got my PhD in May 2007 at Caltech, working with Prof. Steven Quartz and Ladan Shams on Bayesian modeling of perception, specifically multisensory. I also spent half a year at Caltech working with Prof. Peter Bossaerts on problems in Neuroeconomics.
I grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark, and got my Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science (Physics) from the University of Copenhagen where I studied at the Niels Bohr Instiute.
