Research Interests: I am primarily interested in how differences in perception and information processing lead to differences in planning and behavior. Currently, I am researching how differences in temporal discounting and creativity relate to differences in the exploration-exploitation tradeoff, which is a key animal survival behavior. Additionally, I am interested in the neuroscientific and evolutionary aspects of primary search-related survival behaviors such as hunting and planning.
