Two excellent post-doctoral researchers have been recruited to the Decision-making in an Unstable World project at the University of Bristol.

Andreas Jarvstad will join us in October 2011, fresh from his PhD in Experimental Psychology at Cardiff University. Andreas' PhD focuses on the relationship between low-level cognitive systems and high-level decision-making and inference, and in particular whether perceptuo-motor decisions really are better than cognitive decisions.

Gaurav Malhotra is currently working in Marseille, having completed a PhD in Psycholinguistics and an MSc in Cognitive Science at the University of Edinburgh, and an undergraduate degree in Computer Science.  Gaurav's research interests are investigating theoretical and computational accounts of psychological phenomena, and understanding the role of experience and training in the representation of sensory information in the brain.

We welcome them both to the project, and are very excited to start collaborating with them.
