David J. Halpern

Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Pennsylvania

hi, my name is david and i'm a computational cognitive neuroscientist. i am a postdoc at upenn, working in michael kahana's lab. i completed my phd at nyu with todd gureckis. substantively, i study memory, its storage and control processes and how it can support naturalistic decision-making. methodologically, i am interested in ways to combine many sources of data (behavior and biological measures such as fmri, eeg and cortisol) to improve our inferences for cognitive constructs. when i am not in the lab or playing with my band, i am probably going to a concert, composing electronic music or checking out old-school restaurants in new york.
