Michael D Nunez

Hello! My name is Michael, and 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 classify and model markers of epilepsy and related cognitive impairments. 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 signal processing methods and Bayesian hierarchical statistical modeling.

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