Sebastian Bobadilla-Suarez, Ph.D.
Research Associate
Department of Experimental Psychology
University College London


I am currently a research associate working with Brad Love at University College London (UCL). During my PhD, I worked under the supervision of Brad Love and Tali Sharot also at UCL. Previous collaborations also include Benedetto De Martino and Cass Sunstein. I have worked on various different topics such as heuristics and biases in decision-making as well as on models of similarity for neuroimaging data. Currently, I am working on relating models of similarity from fMRI data to models of similarity derived from artificial neural networks. Other efforts include optimizing parameter estimates for GLMs on fMRI data and biomarker exploration thereof.
