My name is Jan Malte Lichtenberg and I'm an applied machine learning scientist at Amazon Music ML in Berlin, where I work on the fascinating topic of personalizing music recommendations. More specifically, I work on offline policy evaluation and learning how to rank items from different content types.
Previously I completed my PhD at the University of Bath, working on bounded rationality in reinforcement learning with Özgür Şimşek. Before that 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 Have a look at my Google Scholar profile, my github, or my (outdated) CV.
