Dr Jonathan Nelson
Lecturer in Experimental Cognitive Psychology
I completed my PhD (2005) Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), with a dissertation on Optimal Experimental Design as a Theory of Perceptual and Cognitive Information Acquisition [http://www.jonathandnelson.com/papers/nelsonThesisCh1.pdf].
I did a postdoc (2005-2008) at the Salk Institute's Center for Neural Computation [http://cnl.salk.edu/] and UCSD's Computer Science and Engineering Department [https://cse.ucsd.edu/].
I worked from 2008-2017 as a research scientist at the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition, at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development [https://www.mpib-berlin.mpg.de/en].
I am an affiliated researcher with the Berlin School of Mind and Brain [http://www.mind-and-brain.de/home/] at Humboldt University, where I occasionally teach PhD students about Cognitive Science.
I am also a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development [https://www.mpib-berlin.mpg.de/en].
