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.
Before Duke, he was a Neuroscience major at Michigan State University under the Mastercard Foundation Scholars program. His pastimes involve Non-profit work, cooking, and photography.
Good luck Miruna!
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.
