Research Interests: My primary research aim is to contribute to explaining the mind in terms of the brain in ways that lead to both qualitative insight and quantitative predictions. A significant motivating factor is that all humans have brains, and therefore these developments could directly benefit all of humankind. In alignment with this aim, all of our research products are freely available to all from my webpage.


Complex Hierarchical and Latent Variable Modelling • Decision Theory • High Dimensional Problems • Machine Learning • Manifold Learning • Model Selection • Nonparametric Statistical Modeling
