I am a master thesis student at the International Max Planck Research School (Tuebingen) studying Behavioral Neuroscience. My research interest lies in the intersection between Social Psychology and Neuroscience. My current research concerns the examination of stress and decision making. Specifically, can acute stress (and the related endocrine markers cortisol, a-amylase) predict cheating upon monetary payoff?
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
