About me.

My name is Jan Malte Lichtenberg and I am a PhD student at the University of Bath, working on reinforcement learning with Özgür Şimşek. Previously, I worked at the Center for Adaptive Behaviour and Cognition, directed by Gerd Gigerenzer, at the Max-Planck Insitute for Human Development in Berlin.

In my research, I try to inform machine learning models with insights from human decision making research, in particular from the study of simple decision heuristics.  Have a look at my CV, my github, or my Google Scholar profile. You can email me at j.m.lichtenberg ~at~ bath.ac.uk
