Research Interests

Cognitive Modeling, Experimental Design


Sabina is a PhD candidate in the Department of Social and Decision Sciences, with a concentration in Cognitive Decision Sciences. She earned her B.A. in Honours Economics from McGill University in 2015. Sabina is interested in the effect of biased observations on both cognitive and statistical learning processes. Her past research has leveraged a combination of natural language processing, behavioral experiments and mathematical modeling to study how the informational structure of our social environments enables (and hinders!) our ability to make accurate inferences and solve complex problems. Her current line of research looks at the estimation properties of cognitive models and methods for experimental design.
