Research Group Computational Principles of Intelligence
Mirko Thalmann received his PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Zurich after a BSc and an MSc in Psychology. With Klaus Oberauer he investigated the relationship between working memory and long-term memory, the attentional demands of rehearsal, and model misspecification in Bayesian hierarchical regression. He studied visual working memory using reaction-time models with Chris Donkin during a research stay at the University of New South Wales and worked in the industry as a data scientist. Mirko’s goal is to gain a deeper mechanistic understanding of learning and of its interaction with other cognitive abilities.
