Congratulations to Mel for winning a best poster award (2nd place) at the 2019 Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN) conference! The poster was titled Oversampling of minority categories drives misestimation of group compositions, and co-authors included Miruna Cotet (soon to be in graduate school at Ohio State!), Rachel Kranton, and Scott Huettel.
The lab celebrated many accomplishments at a BBQ in Duke Forest. Several lab members will be leaving for new positions: Nikki Sullivan (Asst. Prof, London School Econ.), Libby Jenke (Asst. Prof., U. Houston), Dianna Amasino (Post-Doc, U. Amsterdam), Samyukta Dore (med school, Cleveland Clinic), and Miruna Cotet (grad school, Ohio State). Congrats to all!
Kelsey’s new paper on modeling dynamic choice behavior has been published in Nature Communications! Congratulations to Kelsey on her first paper, which reflects a collaboration between the Huettel and Pearson laboratories.
New paper by Sullivan and colleagues on a behavioral economics approach to disciplined dietary published in Psychological Science! Commentary and media coverage is available at Duke Today and at the Leading Voices in Food Policy podcast.
New paper by Amasino, Sullivan, Kranton, & Huettel published in Nature Human Behavior! See related story at Duke Today.
