Michael D Nunez

I am a Cognitive Neuroscientist who uses mathematical modeling to understand the brain and mind. I am currently working on two lines of research: 1) to further understanding of decision making and cognitive differences across individuals and 2) to develop modeling techniques that better test "neurocognitive" theories with real data. I evaluate electrical signals recorded from the brain while also evaluating human behavior during experiments. To answer specific scientific questions with this data, I often use Bayesian hierarchical statistical modeling and signal processing methods.

I work as an Assistant Professor in the Psychological Methods group at the University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands. I am a member of both the Mathematical Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory and the Amsterdam Mathematical Psychology Laboratory. I am also a loving husband, an enthusiastic rock climber, and mountain biker.
