Aarhus University, Denmark
Chris is Professor of Cognitive Science at Aarhus University in Denmark. His group’s research is focused on the creation of computational models of behaviour and brain function, with a recent emphasis on the modelling of delusions. As a graduate student, Chris developed hierarchical Gaussian filtering (HGF), a modelling approach that allows for the automatic, principled, and agent-specific adjustment of learning rates in rapidly changing environments. This enables the quantification of individual differences in learning, inference, and decision-making. In addition to his original background in physics and information technology, Chris has trained as a clinical psychologist.
