Tobias Thomas joined the lab as a PhD student in December 2021.
He is working on the hessian.ai project „The Third wave of artificial intelligence“.
My research interests revolve around human perception and decision making, especially in natural environments. To understand those phenomena, I use behavioral experiments including psychophysics and eye-tracking, as well as computational modeling, especially Bayesian and reinforcement learning methods.
