Jack is a graduate student with Dr. Wouter Kool in the Control and Decision Making Lab. He studies cognitive effort and cognitive control, or perhaps more broadly, why thinking is hard and when we engage in it deliberately. He is also interested in the overlap between cognitive neuroscience and artificial intelligence and hopes to do research that could inspire artificial intelligence development in some way. He received a B.S. in Psychology in 2018 from Duke University, where he subsequently served as a lab manager under Dr. Tobias Egner for two years.
