Doug Markant is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Adaptive Rationality, within the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin. He recently completed his Ph.D. in the Cognition and Perception program at NYU working with Prof. Todd Gureckis. Doug is interested in how people form abstract beliefs about the world (for example, through learning categories of objects) and their ability to revise those beliefs in response to shifting circumstances. Mark also has a background in MRI work, which he acquired while working at the Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory at Harvard Medical School, where the focus is on using MRI to measure structural brain differences in psychiatric populations such as schizophrenia and PTSD.
