About me!

Hello! I'm Sandy, a PhD student in Cognitive Science at UC-Berkeley, Psychology.

I'm interested in understanding decision-making from different perspectives. Reinforcement learning is a common language in my research. I hope that my research can better the understanding of how humans make decisions and inspire value-aligned intelligence.
