Adam Bear is interested in using computational models to better understand people’s decisions and everyday judgments. Specifically, his work has asked questions such as “What does it mean to make a conscious choice?”, “Can delusional beliefs be explained by mistakes in how we experience time?”, “Does conscious deliberation make us less cooperative?”, “What is ‘normal’?”, and “Do people implicitly reason like statisticians?” He received his BA in cognitive science and MA in philosophy from Brown University and a PhD in psychology from Yale University.
