I use computational models of signal detection and behavioral economics to investigate perception & decision-making, affect/emotion, and individual differences. I model those processes in software agents and investigate the breakdown of those processes in mental illness. My research takes a broad comparative approach.

Prior work with whales & dolphins and parrots involved laboratory-based research on learning and referential communication and free-ranging behavioral ecological research on social structure.
